Abstract

1. 1. The nucleotide profiles of whole blood of man and animals were obtained by high pressure liquid chromatography. 2. 2. Within a species, the chromatograms were remarkably reproducible; however, each species exhibited a variation in the pattern that was characteristically its own. 3. 3. The major difference in higher and lower species was in the distinguishable 4. amounts of GTP and UTP in the lower species and the virtual absence of these compounds in the higher species. 5. 4. Adenylate kinase, guanlate kinase, nucleoside diphosphokinase and purine nucleoside phosphorylase activity were determined in the erythrocytes of some of these species.
