Caption: Computer graphics representation of a lysozyme molecule from a T4 bacteriophage. Lysozyme is an important catalytic enzyme that is capable of cleaving sugar structures in biological systems. It has been isolated from many sources, including egg white. The structure of lysozyme was first obtained in 1965 by D.C. Phillips et al at the Royal Institution in London. This image shows the complete polypeptide (amino acid) chain. A bacteriophage is a viral parasite of bacteria, which subverts the bacteria's genetic material to produce bacteriophage progeny.
