L-lysin-a-oxidase (LO), a fungal enzyme catalysing oxidative deamination of L-lysin, was used for the inhibition of the reproduction of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). Antiviral activity of LO was tested in vitro. The expression of viral antigens and CPE of HSV-1 was inhibited by LO at a concentration 0.7 mg/ml.
