Structural features of plant chitinases and chitin-binding proteins are discussed. Many of these proteins consist of multiple domains, of which the chitin-binding hevein domain is a predominant one. X-ray and NMR structures of representatives of the major classes of these proteins are available now, and are used to describe the structures of the other ones. Conserved positions of Cys residues can be taken as evidence for identically located disulfide bridges or cysteine residues. The current… CONTINUE READING
