Lysozymes are antibacterial enzymes important in the innate immune defense of several animal phyla. An Atlantic cod goose-type (g-type) lysozyme EST was identified in a suppression subtractive hybridisation (SSH) cDNA library and the full-length cDNA (codg1) was obtained by RACE-PCR. The lysozyme gene is organised in five exons and four introns similar to g-type lysozyme genes in other fish species. Two different cod lysozyme transcripts, named codg1 and codg2, seem to be produced by the use of… CONTINUE READING
