Abstract

Hepatic microsomes prepared from red-winged blackbirds and albino rats were incubated with N,N-dimethylaniline (DMA)_in complete incubation mixtures at pH 7.9 and 37?C for 10 min. Formaldehyde and N,N-dimethylaniline--oxide produced from DMA were measured. Redwings were found to have significantly lower N-demethylation activities than rats, and redwings had only marginal or no N-oxidation activities. Hepatic microsomes from redwings did not further metabolize the N-oxide. The N-oxidation and N-demethylation activities of brown-headed cowbirds, common grackles, and starlings were similar to those of redwings.
