1. 1. Embryo chicks or newly hatched chickens have a significantly higher ADA activity in bursa tissue and cells than in thymus tissue or cells, regardless of whether ADA activity is expressed per mg of wet tissue, per 109 cells or per mg tissue-or cell protein. 2. 2. This difference persists from the sixteenth day after incubation to the third day after hatching. 3. 3. ADA activity in liver was low, and in the spleen was comparable to that observed in bursa.
