1. 1. Partially purified amylase preparations of various mouse tiflaes were studied by cellulose acetate electrophoresis. The liver and serum contained predominantly an amylase variant electrophoretically identical with parotid amylase, but urine contained only the pancreatic type. 2. 2. Mouse serum amylase activity was markedly reduced by partial hepatectomy but not by sialadenectomy. 3. 3. Intravenously injected mouse pancreatic amylase rapidly disappeared from the serum and appeared in the urine; parotid amylase also disappeared from the serum, but little of it appeared in the urine. 4. 4. It is concluded that mouse liver secretes amylase of both pancreatic and parotid types into the blood, but only the pancreatic type is excreted.
