Rabbit tear lysozyme was detected in low concentration in rabbit tears collected without any stimulation. Quantitation of rabbit tear lysozyme was found possible through the use of sensitive techniques that measure its specific enzymic activity on the bacterial cell walls of Micrococcus lysodeikticus. Rabbit tear lysozyme has an electrophoretic mobility identical to that of hen egg-white lysozyme on cellulose and acrylamide gel. The experimental use of rabbits for tear lysozyme studies is discussed.
