Lysozyme C Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total Lysozyme C protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ala65 of human Lysozyme C protein. Antibodies are purified by peptide affinity chromatography.
Lysozymes are secreted proteins that have bacteriolytic function which are critical for mammalian innate immune function. All lysozymes function to defend host animals from microbial infection by hydrolyzing bacterial cell wall peptidoglycan (1). Conventional-type lysozymes (Lysozyme C) are one of three types of lysozymes; each family member is categorized based on amino acid sequence and biochemical properties. Lysozyme C is expressed in mammalian secretions like tears, urine, and milk, but are also expressed by phagocytes such as macrophages, neutrophils, and dendritic cells. Lysozyme C is encoded in humans by a single LYZ gene. The mouse orthologs of Lysozyme C are encoded by two genes, Lyz1 and Lyz2, which encode Lysozyme C-1 and Lysozyme C-2 (Lysozyme C-1/2). Interestingly, Lyz2 is upregulated in microglia of Alzheimer's disease mouse model brains that have been stimulated by specific forms of activity (2). Lyz1 and Lyz2 are uniquely expressed in microglia, and increased Lyz2 correlates with microglia-mediated β-amyloid (Aβ) clearance, suggesting that Lysozyme C-1/2 may directly contribute to microglial-clearance of Aβ or act as a marker for certain microglial activity states in the brain (3).
