Abstract:

The interaction of lysozyme with indoacetic acid was found to result in the conversion of all of the lysozymic histidine to an N-carboxymethyl histidine. The fact that the modified enzyme retains its lysic activity as assayed with Micrococcus lysodeikticus leads to the conclusion that the active site of lysozyme very probably does not contain a histodine residue.
