Title The chemistry of egg white lysozyme
Date 1949
Description An historical review of the chemistry and properties of lysozyme has been presented. An assay method has been developed that is accurate to ± 5%. Sarcina lutea are reacted with lysozyme near the pH optimum for the enzymic action. The suspension is then made alkaline to dissolve the lysed bacteria. This method permits separate study of the two stages of lysis without resorting to additional techniques. The effects of high concentrations of glycerol, ethylene glycol, and urea on lysis have been described and discussed.
