Conjugation of para-nitrophenol by the isolated perfused neonatal sheep liver.

We examined the metabolism of para-nitrophenol (PNP) in the isolated perfused neonatal sheep liver (n = 8, 0.25-11 days) and compared the findings with our previous data from the perfused near-term fetal sheep liver (Ring, J.
