Domain relationships

Description

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 [PMID: 8673609], suggesting that it may function as a carbohydrate-binding domain.
