1. 1. The activities of a number of glycosidases in the submaxillary glands of the mouse and other animals were measured. 2. 2. Two enzymes, β-N-acetyl-d-glucosaminidase and α-dmannosidase, showed a sexual dimorphism in the mouse: higher levels were found in the male but values could be elevated in the female by administration of testosterone.
