Lysozyme, isolated from the urine of patients with monocytic leu kemia, has been crystallized as the chlo ride at pH 4.5 and at pH 10.5. The crystal forms of the human enzyme show certain similarities as well as dis tinct dissimilarities compared with the crystal forms of lysozyme chloride from hen's egg white.
