CHB_HEX

Putative carbohydrate binding domain
CHB_HEX
SMART accession number:SM01081
Description: This domain represents the N terminal domain in chitobiases and beta-hexosaminidases EC:3.2.1.52. It is composed of a beta sandwich structure that is similar in structure to the cellulose binding domain of cellulase from Cellulomonas fimi (PUBMED:8673609). This suggests that this may be a carbohydrate binding domain.
Interpro abstract (IPR004866):

This domain is found in the N terminus of chitobiases and beta-hexosaminidases. It is composed of a beta sandwich structure that is similar in structure to the cellulose binding domain of cellulase from Cellulomonas fimi [(PUBMED:8673609)], suggesting that it may function as a carbohydrate-binding domain.
