Homogenates of fetal, newborn and maternal kidney and placenta have been compared with homogenates of non-pregnant adult kidney for their ability to hydroxylate 25-hydroxycholecalciferol. The activity in the fetal kidney near term is similar to that in the mother and 4--5 times that in the non-pregnant adult. These differences from the non-pregnant adult are significant (p less than 0.05 and 0.1 fetus and newborn, respectively). Even higher levels are present in some newborn 12--24 h after birth, but these values fall towards the non-pregnant level in the following 21 days. Significant hydroxylating activity is present in the near-term placenta.
