lisozyme is just like it's name which is a lysing enzyme. Now guess..if you have that kind of enzyme, what would you lyse with that thing??:lol:

lysosomes r organels of a cell they have in them many kinds if enzymes which r hydrolytic .they from either from golgi bodies or endo plasmic reticulam. which carry these enzyme to required site that is an old or improperly working organal or might be a bacteria which have been engulfed or food molecules engulf them digest them and throw them out of it
hope this is sufficiend
any more information required or if ur left with doubts ur welcome to contact me at my adress "[email protected]"
sorry for my bad english either :D
the organisms that survive r not the one which r strongest nor the one which r briliant THEY R THE ONE WHICH RESPOND TO CHANGES IN NATURE FIRST

ermm...a lysosyme is simply an enzyme which is involved in the breaking down of macromolecules within a cell.

ACTUALLY
Lysosim is named an antibacterial enzyme for a reason. the cell wall of a bactria is made of a polisacharide and short peptidic molecules. The polisacharide is composed of 2 monosacharides.
Lysosim(or whatever the correct spelling is) is able to break down the bond between the 2: N-acetylglucosamine and N-acetyl-muramic.

Andrew

Does this mean that Gram negative bacteria are resistent because they have another lipid layer over the peptidglican?

I will add just a little bit: Lysozyme is packed in the lysosome. I am sure you already know about this organelle and its functions :)

no, there are 2 different things that sound alike:
Lysozyme: antibacterial enzyme(protein)
Lyzozyme: generic term for any RNA with catalytic function.

Now RNA with catalytic functions are ribozymes... But any enzyme was the product of the translation of some mRNA.
