Abstract

DURING the study of the carbohydrates of the mammary gland, a polysaccharide-like compound which contains glucose and galactose has been found. As it may be of importance in the long-sought mechanism of synthesis of lactose by this gland, it was decided to report its finding while its purification and the study of its structure are being pursued.
