    Abstract

    The existence of very low activities of a L fucosidase (a L fucoside fucohydrolase, EC 3.2.1.51) in some normal human sera is reported. The mean value for these sera is less than 10% of the corresponding mean for other normal sera. A preliminary experiment suggests that the low activity sera do not contain inhibitors of the enzyme. Activities in sera prepared from the same individuals on separate occasions are remarkably consistent.
