Abstract

1. 1. Aqueous humor of the rabbit, guinea-pig and rat has been examined to determine if non-specific peroxidase activity is present within this ocular fluid. 2. 2. Substantial peroxidase activity was found within the aqueous humor of the rat. In contrast, no peroxidase activity could be detected in the aqueous humor of the rabbit or guinea-pig. 3. 3. Partial purification by gel chromatography revealed that the peroxidase within the aqueous humor of the rat has a mol. wt of approx. 45,000.
