ALTHOUGH the structure of hen's egg white lysozyme is known in great detail1–3, information about its mechanism of action is limited. Lysozyme has been shown to act as a glycosidase which hydrolyses β(1→4) N-acetylrnuramyl (MurNAc) linkages in bacterial cell walls and their oligo-saccharides, and β(1→4) N-acetylglucosaminyl (GlcNAc) linkages in chitin oligosaccharides4. To obtain more data on the specificity requirements and on the mechanism of action of lysozyme, we have investigated its… CONTINUE READING
