Abstract

In general it may be said that glucocorticoids decrease, whereas catatoxic steroids increase, the weight of the liver in various species. However, these effects largely depend upon a variety of conditioning factors such as the dosage of the hormones, as well as the age, diet and species of the animals under investigation. Here we shall deal only with those changes which have been shown or at least suspected to be related to adaptive enzyme formation.
