The effect of estradiol-17 beta on RNA synthesis and the amounts of total RNA and polyadenylic acid were determined in primary cultures of Xenopus laevis liver parenchymal cells. Results showed that estradiol did not alter the RNA content significantly; control cells contained 11.9 +/- 0.34 micrograms and estradiol-treated cells 12.4 +/- 0.17 micrograms per 10(6) cells on day 2 of estradiol treatment, and 22.0 +/- 0.61 micrograms and 24.0 +/- 1.09 micrograms on day 5.
