Abstract 1. 1. Catalases in the tissues of six different mammalian species were examined, as well as in a mutant strain of mouse. 2. 2. Considerable variation was observed in regard to total activity, heat stability, urea stability and susceptibility to inhibition of catalase between the individual mammalian species. 3. 3. These results stress that considerable variation in the physicochemical properties of an enzyme can take place even amongst animals that are closely related phylogenetically, and suggest that the heterogeneity observed for the rat and the mouse may reflect an evolutionary mechanism by which these animals have compensated for the increased lability of their catalases.
