|Application ||WB, IF|
|Calculated MW||16537 Da|
|Other Names||Lysozyme C, 4-beta-N-acetylmuramidase C, LYZ, LZM|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in human Lysozyme C was used as an immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|

Lysozyme is a ubiquitous enzyme defined as muraminidase catalyzing the hydrolysis of the beta (1-4) glycosidic bond in bacterial peptidoglycan, a major component of the bacterial cell wall (1). Lysozyme C in tissues and body fluids is associated with the monocyte-macrophage system and enhances the activity of immunoagents. Lysozyme C catalyzes the hydrolysis of certain mucopolysaccharides of bacterial cell walls. Specifically, it catalyzes the hydrolysis of the bacterial cell wall beta(1-4) glycosidic linkages between N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetylglucosamine. It is found in spleen, lung, kidney, white blood cells, plasma, saliva, milk, and tears (2). Defects in LYZ are a cause of amyloidosis type 8 (AMYL8); also known as systemic non-neuropathic amyloidosis or Ostertag-type amyloidosis (3).
