Are gram negative bacterias affected by lysozyme?

Here my question, gram positive bacterias are affected by lysozyme (bc of ß(1,4) bonds) but are gram negatives affected by lysozyme?

I have a book that says "archeas have ß(1,3) bonds", but what bonds have gram negatives in their peptidoglycan? Does it affect by lysozyme?

Thanks in advance.
