Tear lysozyme levels in bacterial, fungal and viral corneal ulcers

, : Tear lysozyme levels in bacterial, fungal and viral corneal ulcers. Acta Ophthalmologica 69(4): 530-532

Low levels of tear lysozyme were observed in patients with infective corneal ulcers, when compared with controls. Lowest levels were seen in patients with bacterial corneal ulcers. The levels of tear lysozyme showed a corresponding decrease with the increase in Schirmer test values; meaning thereby, that in ocular conditions associated with increased rate of tear flow, the lysozyme content in tears tends to be low.

A spectrophotometric assay for [mouse liver] catalase was developed in which sodium perborate, rather than H2O2, is used as the substrate. The method is convenient, rapid, and readily adapted to the measurement of catalse in subcellular fractions.

The use of RFLP markers, together with a partial set of monosomics available in Avena byzantina cv Kanota, has enabled us to identify putative homoeologous chromosome sets in hexaploid Avena species (2n = 6x = 42, AACCDD). We first identified prob...
