Chitin-binding protein, N-terminal (IPR004302)

Short name: Chitin-bd_N

Domain relationships

Description

This domain is found associated with a wide variety of cellulose binding domains [PMID: 7815940]. Proteins containing this domain include two very closely related proteins that together act as both a C1- and a C4-oxidising lytic polysaccharide mono-oxygenase, degrading cellulose [PMID: 24912171]. This domain is also found in baculoviral spheroidins and spindolins [PMID: 8376960], and in bacterial GlcNAc-binding protein A (gbpA) [PMID: 16341015].
