comments
This enzyme belongs to chitinase class-II (glycosyl hydrolase family-18).
This enzyme is composed of N-terminal catalytic domain, two fibronectin type-III domains and C-terminal chitin-binding domain. The PDB structures, 1itx, 1k85, and 1ed7 correspond to the catalytic domain, the second fibronectin type-III domain, and chitin-binding domain, respectively.
According to the literature [8], in glycosylase family-18, there are two types of enzymes with different catalytic mechanisms, chitinase (PDB; 1ctn) and hevamine (2hvm). The former enzyme uses two acidic residue as catalytic residues, whilst the latter has only one catalytic residue, using a moiety of its substrate as a catalytic group during the catalysis. The catalytic domain of this enzyme is similar to chitinase, rather than hevamine, since it has two acidic residues, which can be superimposed to those of chitinase (T00063).
However, more recent study proposed that Tyr279, which is conserved throughout the family-18, instead of Asp280, can be involved in catalysis (T00063).
Although this enzyme has a different domain composition from chitinase, these enzymes must have the same catalytic mechanism.
