The concentrations of these substances in wet liver tissue from randomly selected, adult mice were determined colorimetrically. DNA exhibits a modal concentration near 320 mg. per 100 gm. of wet tissue. Cytoplasmic constituents do not exhibit modal concentrations. Preliminary measurements performed upon mice fed carbon tetrachloride in olive oil indicate lower concentrations of RNA, acid soluble phosphates, and lipid phosphates in experimental mice.
