|Interpro abstract (IPR018392):
||The LysM (lysin motif) domain is about 40 residues long and is found in a variety of enzymes involved in bacterial cell wall degradation [(PUBMED:1352512)]. It contains a beta-alpha-alpha-beta conformation, with the beta strands forming an antiparallel beta sheet and the two alpha helices packing on one side of this sheet [(PUBMED:10843862)]. It may have a general peptidoglycan binding function. This domain can also be found in some eukaryotic proteins, such as the nuclear receptor coactivators and oxidation resistance protein 1.
There are 36903 LysM domains in 24114 proteins in SMART's nrdb database.
