To examine the ecology and evolution of microbial chitinases, especially the chitin-binding domain, one of the chitinase genes (chiA) from the marine bacterium Vibrio harveyi was analysed. The deduced amino acid sequence of ChiA is not very similar overall to other proteins, except for two regions, the putative catalytic and chitin-binding domains. Among all bacterial chitinases sequenced to date, there is no relationship between percentage similarity of catalytic domains and chitin-binding… CONTINUE READING
