We evaluated the in vitro activity of the endolysin HY-133 against UKM4229 using the broth microdilution method in accordance with ISO 20776-1 guidance (https:IIwww.iso.orgIstandardI41630.html), as described elsewhere (31,32).

Assessment of in vivo anti-staphylococcal activity of the LysSA1 endolysin in septic mice model.
It uses a "designer" endolysin, Staphefekt, which the scientists engineered to latch on to the surface of bacteria cells and tear them apart.
The discovery also indicated that all the phases carried a gene coding a protein called endolysin, an enzyme that breaks down bacterial cell walls.
Hatfull and his colleagues also found that the 11 viruses they studied carry a gene for the enzyme endolysin, which can degrade bacterial cell walls.
The bacteriophage produces a protein, an endolysin, which recognizes C.
