Endolysins are hydrolytic enzymes produced by bacteriophages in order to cleave the host's cell wall during the final stage of the lytic cycle. They are highly evolved enzymes able to cleave peptidoglycan (murein), the main component of bacterial cell wall, which allows the release of progeny virions from the lysed cell. They are highly species specific, leaving non-target bacteria intact.
