Epithelial cells of trout lens in tissue culture produced an extracellular, PAS-positive, diastase-resistant, fibrous substance which was assumed to represent lens capsule material. The extracellular strands were first seen after two weeks of culture and appeared to increase in quantity in older cultures. Fine intracytoplasmic granules of similar staining properties were present at six days and, at later intervals, coarser cytoplasmic inclusions of PAS-positive material were common.
