Lysozyme is a muramidase that inflicts damage on bacterial cell wall by catalyzing the cleavage of the beta-1,4-glycosidic bond between N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetylglucosamine in peptidoglycan. Lysozymes are classified into several types, one of which is the goose-type (g-type). In this study, we identified and analyzed a g-type lysozyme (SmLysG) from turbot Scophthalmus maximus. The deduced amino acid sequence of SmLysG contains 193 residues and is most closely related to that of the g… CONTINUE READING
