A new method of starch-gel electrophoresis using a technique of staining dependent on enzyme activity has been employed to demonstrate the isozymes of aldolase from a variety of human, rat, and frog tissues. Five of these isozymes were detected in man, seven in the rat, and at least four in the frog. The abilities of these isozymes to cleave fructose-1 ,6-diphosphate and fructose-1-phosphate were compared.
