Chitin-binding domain type 2
SMART accession number:SM00494
Description: -
Interpro abstract (IPR002557):

This entry represents a chitin binding domain [ (PUBMED:10770921) ]. It is found in (amongst others) the Peritrophin-A chitin binding proteins, particularly the peritrophic matrix proteins of insects and animal chitinases [ (PUBMED:9651363) (PUBMED:8621536) (PUBMED:9256413) ]. Copies of the domain are also found in some baculoviruses. It is an extracellular domain that contains six conserved cysteines that probably form three disulphide bridges. Chitin binding has been demonstrated for a protein containing only two of these domains [ (PUBMED:9651363) ].
