Domain relationships


This entry represents a domain found in a group of bacterial carbohydrate esterases known as CE2 (family CE2 in the CAZy classification), including CjCE2A (B3PIB0), CjCE2B (B3PDE5) and CjCE2C (B3PC75) from Cellvibrio japonicus [PMID: 19338387]. In Clostridium thermocellum, this domain (CtCE2) is linked to the cellulase, CtCel5C; therefore, it is known as CtCel5C-CE2 modular protein. The enzyme also contains a type I dockerin module that, by binding to cohesin modules in the scaffoldin protein, incorporates CtCel5C-CE2 into the multienzyme plant cell-wall-degrading complex known as the cellulosome. CtCE2 displays acetyl esterase activity that is spatially coupled to a noncatalytic cellulose-binding function [PMID: 19338387].
