Abstract

The fact that a considerable amount of kynurenine (Kyn) is species-specifically accumulated in rat fur was discovered in 1960 by Ishiguro and co-workers (Hotta et al., 1960). The cause of this phenomenon has been exhaustively investigated in our laboratory, but no adequate explanation has been obtained so far.
