Polysaccharide lyase family 8, C-terminal (IPR004103)

Short name: Lyase_8_C

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



Proteins containing this domain consist of a group of secreted bacterial lyase enzymes capable of acting on hyaluronan (hyaluronate lyase, EC: and chondroitin (chondroitin AC lyase, EC: in the extracellular matrix of host tissues, contributing to the invasive capacity of the pathogen [PMID: 14523022, PMID: 10329169]. This domain is almost always associated with the polysaccharide lyase family 8, N-terminal domain (see IPR003159). This entry represents the C-terminal domain of hyaluronate and chondroitin AC lyase enzymes.
