Abstract

We have studied a method to determine the concentrations of low level of immunoglobulins and lysozyme in saliva. The concentration of IgG, IgA and IgM in human whole saliva were measured by fluorimetric method and the concentration of lysozyme by turbidimetric method. The results of our study in 18 normal subjects (15 females and 3 males), have showed the geometric mean concentration (microgram/ml) IgG 5,1; IgA 177; IgM 2,6 and lysozyme 117.

Bacterial Cell Wall Structure (ASM)

Bacterial cell walls are made of peptidoglycan (also called murein), which is made from polysaccharide chains cross-linked by unusual peptides containing D-amino acids. Here is the latest research on bacterial cell wall structures.
