1. 1. The cell-free protein synthetic activity of the post-mitochondrial supernatant from the testes of 6-, 14-, and 30-month-old Sprague-Dawley rats and C57 B1/6J mice was determined. 2. 2. An age-related decrease in cell-free protein synthesis was observed in both groups of rodents and was similar to the decrease previously reported for Fischer F344 rats. 3. 3. The decrease in cell-free protein synthesis by testicular tissue from rodents occurs primarily after 14 months of age.
