Abstract

In a comparative study of buphthalmic and normal rabbits, proteins of serum, lysed erythrocytes, and intraocular fluid (anterior chamber) were separated by acrylamide gel electrophoresis and tested for esterase activity. Several bands of esterase activity were observed in all classes of samples. No significant differences were observed in esterase activity between normal and buphthalmic animals. There does not appear to be genetic relationship between the bu locus and the esterase activity of these body fluids in the rabbit. Three distinct esterase phenotypes appear in serum, but there was insufficient data to establish a mode of inheritance.
