Domain

Soluble ligand binding domain (IPR019554)

Short name: Soluble_ligand-bd

Domain relationships

None.

Description

The soluble ligand-binding beta-grasp domain (SLBB) contains a beta-grasp fold. They are found in a diverse set of proteins that include the animal vitamin B12 uptake proteins; transcobalamin, intrinsic factor and the bacterial polysaccharide export proteins [PMID: 17250770]. Some proteins may be part of a membrane complex involved in electron transport, others are probably involved in the export of the extracellular polysaccharide colanic acid from the cell to medium.
