Lysozyme susceptibility of partially deacetylated chitin.


Lysozyme susceptibility of partially deacetylated chitins (DACs) was investigated by viscometric and gel permeation chromatographic procedures. The highest lysozyme susceptibility was shown by the DAC of around 70% deacetylation which have already been reported to have the highest immunoadjuvant activity through mouse peritoneal macrophage activation.
