      Immunolocalization of the factor V was performed in adult and fetal rat liver by means of an indirect peroxidase labelling. This could be done owing to the production in our laboratory of a monospecific antiserum anti rat factor V. In all the cases (perfused and non-perfused adult liver and fetal one) the observation of the sections has revealed an intense circular or granular labelling into all the hepatocytes whatever was their localization in the hepatic lobule. Hepatic endot helial cells seemed to be negative for factor V and this aspect of our results was discussed.
