Carbohydrate-binding modules (CBM) have been classified into more than 40 families according to sequence homology [E1]. Several cellulolytic enzymes share a conserved region of about 120 amino acid residues, the CBM6 domain . The CBM6 domain is distinct from others CBMs in that this protein module contains multiple distinct ligand binding sites. CBM6 domains bind to amorphous cellulose, xylan, mixed β-(1,3)(1,4)glucan and β-1,3-glucan [1,2,3].
The CBM6 domain is mainly found C-terminal to the catalytic domain, which corresponds to a wide range of bacterial glycosyl hydrolases such as family 16 (see <PDOC00794>), or family 10 (see <PDOC00510>).
The crystal structure of CBM6 domain has been solved (see <PDB:1GMM>) . It adopts a classic lectin-like β-jelly roll fold, predominantly consisting of five antiparallel β-strands on one face and four antiparallel β-strands on the other face. It contains two potential ligand binding sites, named respectively cleft A and B. These clefts include aromatic residues which are probably involved in the substrate binding. The cleft B is located on the concave surface of one β-sheet, and the cleft A on one edge of the protein between the loop that connects the inner and outer β-sheets of the jelly roll fold . The multiple binding clefts confer the extensive range of specificities displayed by the domain [1,2,3].
Some proteins known to contain a CBM6 domain are listed below:
The profile we developed covers the whole CBM6 domain.Note:
The CBM6 domain is also known as cellulose-binding domain family VI (CBD VI).Last update:
