UniProt Comment
  • Lysozymes have primarily a bacteriolytic function; those in tissues and body fluids are associated with the monocyte-macrophage system and enhance the activity of immunoagents.
Biomarker applications (based on IPA annotation)
  • unspecified application
Pathway Interaction Database
  • C-MYB transcription factor network
  • Amyloids

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs1800973) and 1 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
