X8Possibly involved in carbohydrate binding
|SMART accession number:||SM00768|
|Description:||The X8 domain, which may be involved in carbohydrate binding, is found in an Olive pollen antigen as well as at the C terminus of family 17 glycosyl hydrolases. It contains 6 conserved cysteine residues which presumably form three disulfide bridges.|
|Interpro abstract (IPR012946):|
The X8 domain [(PUBMED:11115868)] contains 6 conserved cysteine residues that presumably form three disulphide bridges. The domain is found in an Olive pollen allergen [(PUBMED:15004167)] as well as at the C terminus of family 17 glycosyl hydrolases [(PUBMED:11554480)]. This domain may be involved in carbohydrate binding.
