Soluble sulfatase has been found in epiphyseal, articular, and rib cartilages and in metaphysis and bone marrow of the rat. The greatest activity in young rats is in the metaphysis. Young rats had higher levels of activity in epiphyseal and articular cartilage and in the metaphysis than did the older rats.
