effects of chemical pollution on the activities of hepatic xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes in fish from the river rhône.polychlorobiphenyl (pcbs) levels and hepatic xenobiotic metabolizing enzyme activities were measured in fish from three locations of the river rhône to study the consequences of a constant loading of pcbs from a pcb incineration plant. our results show that levels of pcbs and enzyme activities were higher in fish living downstream from the plant than in fish from two locations upstream, suggesting enzyme induction by pcbs (known to be potent inducers in laboratory conditions). enzyme activities ...19883145559
