Domain

Beta-galactosidase, domain 3 (IPR025972)

Short name: BetaGal_dom3

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This is the third domain of the five-domain beta-galactosidase enzyme that altogether catalyses the hydrolysis of beta(1-3) and beta(1-4) galactosyl bonds in oligosaccharides, as well as the inverse reaction of enzymatic condensation and trans-glycosylation. This domain has an Ig-like fold [PMID: 15491613].
