1. 1. A soluble epoxide hydratase from mouse liver or kidney converts juvenile hormone and two epoxide containing juvenoids to their respective diols faster than the microsomal epoxide hydratases. 2. 2. The soluble enzyme hydrates the two trisubstituted epoxides much faster than the tetrasubstituted epoxide. 3. 3. Analysis by gel filtration indicates an approximate mol. wt of 150,000 for the liver enzyme while isoelectric focusing indicates a pI of 4·9.
