1. 1. The major β-crystallin fractions have been isolated from the ocular lens of six species of mammals. 2. 2. Each species has two major β-crystallin classes which differ in mol. wt, but which share some identical polypeptides. 3. 3. Definite variations in polypeptide composition are demonstrated among the species studied. 4. 4. The β-crystallins from the rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) are the most distinctive among those of the species studied.
