Let 𝑀 be a 2-torsion-free semiprime Γ -ring satisfying the condition 𝑎 𝛼 𝑏 𝛽 𝑐 = 𝑎 𝛽 𝑏 𝛼 𝑐 for all 𝑎 , 𝑏 , 𝑐 𝑀 , 𝛼 , 𝛽 Γ , and let 𝐷 𝑀 𝑀 be an additive mapping such that 𝐷 ( 𝑥 𝛼 𝑥 ) = 𝐷 ( 𝑥 ) 𝛼 𝑥 + 𝑥 𝛼 𝑑 ( 𝑥 ) for all 𝑥 𝑀 , 𝛼 Γ and for some derivation 𝑑 of 𝑀 . We prove that 𝐷 is a generalized derivation.
