ChtBD1Chitin binding domain
|SMART accession number:||SM00270|
|Interpro abstract (IPR001002):|
A number of plant and fungal proteins that bind N-acetylglucosamine (e.g. solanaceous lectins of tomato and potato, plant endochitinases, the wound-induced proteins: hevein, win1 and win2, and the Kluyveromyces lactis killer toxin alpha subunit) contain this domain [(PUBMED:1757999)]. The domain may occur in one or more copies and is thought to be involved in recognition or binding of chitin subunits [(PUBMED:2070799), (PUBMED:1375935)]. In chitinases, as well as in the potato wound-induced proteins, the 43-residue domain directly follows the signal sequence and is therefore at the N terminus of the mature protein; in the killer toxin alpha subunit it is located in the central section of the protein.
