In the report by A. D. McLaren and R. A. Luse on the "Mechanism of inactivation of enzyme proteins by ultraviolet light (2537 A)" [Science 134, 836 (22 September 1961)], two errors occur in the values given for Φ for enzymes in the last two lines of the table. The calculated value of Φ for ribonuclease is 0.03, not 0.30. The known value of Φ for trypsin is 0.015, not 0.105.
