Protein Domain : IPR000254

Name  Cellulose-binding domain, fungal Short Name  Cellulose-bd_dom_fun
Type  Domain Description  The microbial degradation of cellulose and xylans requires several types of enzymes such as endoglucanases (), cellobiohydrolases () (exoglucanases), or xylanases () []. Structurally, cellulases and xylanases generally consist of a catalytic domain joined to a cellulose-binding domain (CBD) by a short linker sequence rich in proline and/or hydroxy-amino acids. The CBD of a number of fungal cellulases has been shown to consist of 36 amino acid residues, and it is found either at the N-terminal or at the C-terminal extremity of the enzymes. As it is shown in the following schematic representation, there are four conserved cysteines in this type of CBD domain, all involved in disulphide bonds.+----------------+| +-----|---------+| | | |xxxxxxxCxxxxxxxxxxCxxxxxCxxxxxxxxxCx
