CBM10 superfamily (IPR036601)

Short name: CBM10_sf

Overlapping entries


Plant cell wall hydrolases from aerobic microorganisms generally have a modular structure consisting of a catalytic domain linked to one or more carbohydrate-binding modules (CBMs). CBMs function to attach the enzyme to the polymeric substrate, thereby increasing the catalytic activity. Most CBMs bind cellulose and are referred to as cellulose-binding domains (CBDs), while some can also bind xylan.

The structure of CBM10 from Pseudomonas Xylanase A has been solved [PMID: 10653641]. The domain consists largely of beta-sheet with three aromatic residues (Tyr8, Trp 22, and Trp24) that are exposed and approximately coplanar and well placed to interact with cellulose.
