The localization of chick embryonic lysozyme was determined by two techniques: by studying the rate of release from the tissue during sequential enzymatic digestion and by immunocytochemistry. Both techniques indicate that, in this tissue, lysozyme is primarily extra-cellular. Cartilage lysozyme was isolated and partially characterized and found to be identical with egg white lysozyme in its immunologic and enzymatic behavior. In addition, a method for the isolation of large numbers of viable chondrocytes is described.
