EC 188.8.131.52, LYZ, Lysozyme.
Lysozymeis an antimicrobial enzyme produced by animals that are part of the innate immune system. Lysozyme is a glycoside hydrolase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of 1,4-beta-linkages between N-acetylmuramic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in peptidoglycan, which is the major component of gram-positive bacterial cell wall.Lysozymes have primarily a bacteriolytic function - those in tissues and body fluids are associated with the monocyte-macrophage system and enhance the activity of immunoagents.
Recombinant Human Lysozyme produced in Plant is a non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 130 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 14kDa. The Recombinant Human Lysozyme is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Oryza sativa (rice).
Sterile Filtered lyophilized (freeze-dried) off white powder.
The protein (1mg/ml) was lyophilized with no additives.
Stock solutions can be prepared by dissolving gently into PBS for several minutes. Recommended stock concentrations are 1mg/ml in PBS.
Lyophilized Lysozyme although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Lysozyme Human Recombinant should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Purity as determined by SDS-PAGE is 85%.
>100,000 Units/mg protein. 1 unit will produce a change of A450 0.001 per minute at pH-6.24 and 25°C, using a suspension of micrococcus lysodeikticus as substrate in a 2.6ml reaction volume.
Recombinant Human Lysozyme is added in lysing bacterial cells to the cell extraction buffer at a range of 0.05-0.5mg/ml (7,000-70,000 U/ml). The common extraction buffer for E. coli cells contains 0.2mg/ml of recombinant Lysozyme in 100mM Tris-HCl, 2mM EDTA, 0.05% Triton X-100, pH 8. The cell paste is suspended in extraction buffer and incubated for at least 15 min at room temperature. Alternatively, Triton X-100 at 1% and PMSF at 1mM can be added separately and the lysis solution is further incubated for at least 15 min at 37C. In other cases, freeze-thaw cycles, sonication, and mechanical cell disruptions are also used to complement the lysozyme lysis protocol.
