CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE
Lysozyme is the name given to a group of enzymes that hydrolyze the glycosidic b-1,4 bonds between n-acetylmuramic acid and n-acetylglucosamine, that exist in the cell wall of certain microorganisms, thus leading to their destruction. The enzyme is widely spread in animals and plants.

In normal individuals, there are relatively high lysozyme levels in serum/plasma, amniotic fluid, saliva, and tears, with lower levels in urine, gallbladder and cerebrospinal fluid. Increased concentrations of lysozyme in urine and serum have been reported in several cases of conditions and diseases, including cases of leukemia, tuberculosis, megaloblastic anemia, acute bacterial infections, Ulcerative Colitis, severe renal failure, pyelonephritis and nephrotic syndrome.
