Abstract

The reaction mechanism seems to be similar to that of lysozyme and most other glycosylhydrolases, i.e. general acid-base catalysis. The role of the amino-terminal domain could not be identified, but it has similarities to the fibronectin III domain. This domain may possibly facilitate the interaction of chitinase A with chitin.
