1. 1. Activities of 20 red cell enzymes were compared in 8 normal female Ovis Aries, in a serially bled ewe followed for 243 days, and in young and old red cell populations separated by density gradient centrifugation. 2. 2. These comparisons indicate that the erythrocyte enzymes which show significant changes with cell age are glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, hexokinase, phosphoglucose isomerase, lactate dehydrogenase, glutathione reductase, enolase and phosphoglycerate kinase. 3. 3. The usefulness of these data in interpretation of enzyme activities fromfetal Ovis Aries is discussed.
