1971). The hepatic free proline pool size, which has been incriminated in the regulation of collagen synthesis (Chvapil and Ryan 1973; Rojkind and DeLeon 1970), may be increased by ethanol (Hakkinen and Kulonen 1975) and is expanded in human portal cirrhosis (Kershenobich et al. 1970). In patients with alcoholic cirrhosis, increased serum free proline and hydroxyproline have been reported (Mata et al. 1975). More recently, it has again been postulated that lactate may playa role (Kershenobich et al.

1980; Pikkarainen and Lieber 1980), probably reflecting increased production coupled with decreased disposition. Swelling of the Hepatocyte and Possible Relation to Microtubular Alterations, Portal Hypertension, and Necrosis Two of the earliest and most conspicuous features of the hepatic damage produced by alcohol are the deposition of fat and the enlargement of the liver. This hepatomegaly was traditionally attributed to the accumulation of lipids. However, in Ethanol Metabolism and Pathophysiology of Alcoholic Liver Disease 25 animals fed alcohol-containing diets it was shown that lipids account for only half the increase in liver dry weight (Lieber et al.

1972; Comai and Gaylor 1973; Hasumura et al. 1975a). Evidence in favor of an increase in a special species of cytochrome P-450 after ethanol treatment was also derived from inhibitor studies (Ullrich et al. 1975). More direct proof was obtained from studies of microsomal proteins (Ohnishi and Lieber 1977). The rise in cytochrome P-450 involved a hemoprotein different from those induced by phenobarbital or 3-methylcholanthrene treatment. Studies by Joly et al. (1976, 1977) also showed that chronic ethanol administration to rats is associated with the appearance of a form of cytochrome P-450 with spectral and catalytic properties different from those of the cytochrome P-450 of control, phenobarbital-treated, and methylcholan-threne-treated rats.
