Lysozyme Application Notes Lysozyme has been used for lysing E. coli and Streptomycetes for extraction purposes such as extracting group specific antigen. It would appear that lysozyme may act as a germinative agent of bacterial spores. The enzyme is often used for lysing bacterial cells by hydrolyzing the peptidoglycan present in the cell walls. Used to prepare spheroplasts. Usage Statement Unless specified otherwise, MP Biomedical's products are for research or further manufacturing use only, not for direct human use.

SKU: 02100834-CF
Base Catalog Number: 100834
Alternate Names: Muramidase; Mucopeptide N-acetylmuramoylhydrolase
Biochemical Physiological Actions : Lysozyme hydrolyzes ß(1?4) linkages between N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in peptidoglycan and between N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in chitodextrin. Gram-positive cells are quite susceptible to this hydrolysis as their cell walls have a high proportion of peptidoglycan. Gram-negative bacteria are less susceptible due to the presence of an outer membrane and a lower proportion of peptidoglycan. However, these cells may be hydrolyzed in the presence of EDTA that chelates metal ions in the outer bacterial membrane.
