Lysozymes, an aa kent as muramidase or N-acetylmuramide glycanhydrolase, are glycoside hydrolases. These are enzymes (EC 3.2.1.17) that damage bacterial cell waws bi catalysin hydrolysis of 1,4-beta-airtages atween N-acetylmuramic acid an N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in a peptidoglycan an stween N-acetyl-D-glucosamine residues in chitodextrins.
