The influence of estron (8 ug/100g of animal’s body weight) on the exocrine function of liver and the changes in bile acid composition of bile on different sex rats was studied. It was shown, that hormone at the applied dose, effected choleresis of female rats more effectively. Estron also caused different changes in bile composition. So, estron stimulated bile acid conjugation with taurine and glycin in female rat liver. Increas­ing of free and conjugated bile acid biosynthesis in male rats was observed.

Keywords: estron, choleresis, bile, bile acids.
