Domain

Beta-lactamase-like (IPR001279)

Short name: Beta-lactamas-like

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Apart from the beta-lactamases and metallo-beta-lactamases, a number of other proteins contain this domain [PMID: 7588620]. These proteins include thiolesterases, members of the glyoxalase II family, that catalyse the hydrolysis of S-D-lactoyl-glutathione to form glutathione and D-lactic acid and a competence protein that is essential for natural transformation in Neisseria gonorrhoeae and could be a transporter involved in DNA uptake. Except for the competence protein these proteins bind two zinc ions per molecule as cofactor.
