Antisera were developed against centrifugal supernates and crude ribonucleoprotein fractions of normal rat livers and liver tumors. These antisera were tested with the homologous fractions of both the rat liver tumor and normal rat liver in agar-diffusion reactions. In no case was a definite reaction of nonidentity observed although a liver tumor antigen spur was sometimes observed in the reactions that utilized antisera directed against centrifugal supernates of liver tumors. The results indicate a qualitative similarity of a number of antigens derived from liver tumors and normal rat livers.
