Product Description


Family 1 glycosyl hydrolases are a very relevant group of enzymes because of the diversity of biological roles in which they are involved, and their generalized occurrence in all sorts of living organisms. The biological plasticity of these enzymes is a consequence of the variety of beta-glycosidic substrates that they can hydrolyze: disaccharides such as cellobiose and lactose, phosphorylated disaccharides, cyanogenic glycosides, etc. The crystal structure of BglA, a member of the family, has been determined in the native state and complexed with gluconate ligand, at 2.4 A and 2.3 A resolution, respectively. The subunits of the octameric enzyme display the (alpha/beta)8 barrel structural fold previously reported for other family 1 enzymes. However, significant structural differences have been encountered in the loops surrounding the active-center cavity. These differences make a wide and extended cavity in BglA, which seems to be able to accommodate substrates longer than cellobiose, its natural substrate. Furthermore, a third sub-site is encountered, which might have some connection with the transglycosylating activity associated to this enzyme and its certain activity against beta-1,4 oligosaccharides composed of more than two units of glucose.
