Homologous Superfamily

NPCBM domain superfamily (IPR038637)

Short name: NPCBM_sf

Overlapping entries


The novel putative carbohydrate binding module (NPCBM) domain is found at the N terminus of glycosyl hydrolase family 98 (GH98) and at the C terminus of several proteins [PMID: 16212961].

GH98 from C. perfringens specifically hydrolyses fucose-containing trisaccharides from the glycotopes of blood groups A and B and is implicated in the infectivity and virulence of this pathogen [PMID: 15618227].
