Liver cells of 19-day-old mouse embryos were separated by peanut agglutinin (PNA) into two fractions. The fraction agglutinated with the PNA was found to be enriched for cells capable of suppressing the MLC reaction and the response to the mitogens Con A, PHA, and LPS. The fraction not agglutinated by PNA was significantly less suppressive. The response to DxS was not suppressed by any of these fractions. On the other hand, the response to LPS and DxS, but not to Con A or PHA, was expressed by the nonagglutinated fraction. It is thus inferred that the suppressor cells in the embryonic liver are separable from the potentially reactive cells.
