The urinary bladder of the toad, Bufo marinus, was homogenized and the particle-free supernatant fraction prepared. Incubation of this fraction with the hormones, oxytocin, arginine vasopressin, lysine vasopressin, and oxytocin ring amide caused their inactivation. The decrease in hormone activity was roughly exponential with the time of incubation.
