The regulation of hepatic L-serine-dehydratase is described in rats after 5 days proteinfree diet. The enzyme is induced by free amino acids, starvation and tryptophane. Repression occurs by administration of glucose, glycerol, lactate, pyruvate, and actinomycin. Induction is diminished by increasing age of the animals. Hepatic glycogen has no importance for the regulation.
