1. Treatment of purified rabbit phosphoglyceromutase (M type) with N-ethylmaleimide or with iodoacetamide produces the concurrent loss of phosphoglyceromutase activity with its collateral glycerate-2,3-P2 phosphatase activity. 2. Differences are observed in the protective effect of glycerate-2,3-P2 and of glycolate-2-P against N-ethylmaleimide and iodoacetamide treatments. 3. Specific chicken antibodies obtained by injection of the purified rabbit M type phosphoglyceromutase do not cross-react with the B type but neutralize both rabbit and human M type phosphoglyceromutase. 4. Purified rabbit M type phosphoglyceromutase can hybridize in vitro with the purified human B type or with purified human glycerate-2,3-P2 synthase. 5. Its ability to hybridize with glycerate-2,3-P2 synthase is unchanged after iodoacetamide treatment.
