1. 1. The relative rates of synthesis and secretion of glycoproteins by tracheal explants in organ culture from guinea pigs, rats, dogs, cats, sheep, pigs, and monkeys were compared. 2. 2. The relative rates of glycopeptide secretion and of glucosamine uptake by the tracheal slices were remarkably similar. 3. 3. The relative rates of glycoprotein synthesis by such explants showed marked differences between the different species tested.
