  • The chemical evidence for the enzymic activity of lysozyme will be discussed in detail by other speakers at this meeting, but in order to describe our crystallographic studies of the interactions between the enzyme and its substrates it is necessary to summarize briefly what was known about them at the beginning of our work. Simultaneously with his discovery of lysozyme Fleming (1922) discovered a Gram-positive species of bacteria, Micrococcus lysodeikticus, which is particularly susceptible to… CONTINUE READING
