In male rats fed 0.25% CPIB in diet 1 to 2 weeks, the concentration of catalase protein in liver extract was 2.1 times that of controls. With immunochemical methods, it was shown that CPIB enhances the rate of synthesis of hepatic catalase by more than 80% in three days and maintains this enhanced synthesis throughout the duration of its administration.
