Assessment of the enzyme Lysozyme, which is secreted in the presence of gastrointestinal inflammation.
Lysozyme is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of specific glycosidic bonds in mucopolysaccharides that constitute the cell wall of gram-positive bacteria. Lysozyme is an antibacterial defence present in the G.I. tract and is secreted by granulocytes, macrophages, Paneth cells, and Brunner’s Glands as well as normal colonic crypt cells. The main source for faecal lysozyme is the intestinal granulocytes.
