Abstract: A maximum principle and some a priori estimates of a class of degenerate equations with X-ellipticity in the sense of distributions are established. A local comparison of the generalized Green function with its fundamental solutions is obtained. As an application, by means of the power of the Green function as a kernel function of a local integral, we also derive local Hölder continuity for nonlinear degenerate subelliptic equations.
