Molecular cloning, expression and evolution of the Japanese flounder goose-type lysozyme gene, and the lytic activity of its recombinant protein.
In this study, we cloned the goose-type (g-type) lysozyme gene from the Japanese flounder genomic DNA library, the first such data in fish and only the second after the chicken g-type lysozyme gene.Expand
