Kay [1928] and King [1931] have shown that the brain of animals contains a phosphatase which hydrolyses glycerophosphate. Recently Edlbacher et al. [1934] have investigated the enzymes of brain and have come to the conclusion that the brain substance causes a slight cleavage of nucleic acid, magnesium hexosephosphate and sodium glycerophosphate. Except for the above findings very little is known about the phosphatases of the brain. Brain phosphatase is of interest since it is present in an organ rich in phosphatides. In the present work the nature and action of brain phosphatase and its identity with the phosphatases present in other organs have been investigated.
