Domain

Beta-galactosidase C-terminal (IPR013739)

Short name: Beta_galactosidase_C

Domain relationships

None.

Description

O-Glycosyl hydrolases (EC:3.2.1.) are a widespread group of enzymes that hydrolyse the glycosidic bond between two or more carbohydrates, or between a carbohydrate and a non-carbohydrate moiety. A classification system for glycosyl hydrolases, based on sequence similarity, has led to the definition of 85 different families [PMID: 7624375, PMID: 8535779]. This classification is available on the CAZy (CArbohydrate-Active EnZymes) web site.

This domain is found at the C terminus of beta-galactosidase enzymes that belong to the glycosyl hydrolase 42 family [PMID: 12215416].
