Abstract

1. 1. Murine macrophages showed a considerably higher in vitro arginase production in short time cultures than rat peritoneal cells. 2. 2. The in vitro stimulation with casein or thioglycollate resulted in an enhanced in vitro enzyme production in mice. 3. 3. The adherence is not the condition of the enzyme production. 4. 4. The difference between the two species cannot be explained by the lack of bivalent ions, the absence of energy supply, proteolysis, the low number of macrophages or by the different cell types of the peritoneal exudate of mouse and rat. 5. 5. The lysozyme production of murine and rat peritoneal macrophages was also investigated and no difference was observed between the two species.
