Carbohydrate-Binding Module Family 37

Activities in FamilyModules of approx. 100 residues, conserved in numerous R. albus polysaccharide-degrading enzymes and other proteins from this bacterium. Several members of CBM37 have been shown to exhibit rather broad binding specificity to xylan, chitin, microcrystalline and phosphoric-acid swollen cellulose, as well as more heterogeneous substrates, such as alfalfa cell walls, banana stem and wheat straw.
