Abstract

1. 1. Bile pigments from adult and fetal spiny dogfish (Squalus acanthias) were separated and quantitated by high pressure liquid chromatography. 2. 2. In order of relative abundance, bilirubin monoglucuronide, unconjugated bilirubin, bilirubin diglucuronide and bilirubin monoglucoside were present in adult bile and in fetal bile and meconium. 3. 3. All bile pigments were of IXα configuration. 4. 4. Specific hepatic microsomal UDP-glucuronate glucuronosyl transferase activity towards bilirubin and p-nitrophenol were comparable in fetal and adult dogfish.
