Carbohydrate-Binding Module Family 50

Activities in FamilyModules of approx. 50 residues found attached to various enzymes from families GH18, GH19, GH23, GH24, GH25 and GH73, i.e. enzymes cleaving either chitin or peptidoglycan. Binding to chitopentaose demonstrated in the case of Pteris ryukyuensis chitinase A [Ohnuma T et al. (2008) J. Biol. Chem. 283:5178-87 (PMID: 18083709)]. CBM50 modules are also found in a multitude of other enzymes targeting the petidoglycan such as peptidases and amidases. These enzymes are not reported in the list below.
