Abstract Rappaport's picture of liver cells performing specialized functions in spatially distinct zones arranged in relation to hepatic blood flow, is arrived at from a new direction. Previously published data from perfused rat livers eliminating labelled acetaminophen, both pre-formed and formed in the liver from phenacetin, are interpreted to imply that the formation takes place wholly upstream of the elimination. This analysis exemplifies a general method of mapping such functional zones in perfused organs.
