High impact information on GENX-3414

  • The sequence comparison clearly showed that the SBD-like sequences in genethonin-1, starch synthase III and glucan branching enzyme should possess the real SBD function since the two tryptophans (or at least two aromatics) of the typical starch-binding site 1 are conserved in their sequences [1].
  • The sequence of the starch-binding domain present in 10% of amylolytic enzymes of microbial origin and classified as the carbohydrate-binding module family 20, was identified in the equivalent part of sequence of human genethonin, a skeletal muscle protein of unknown function [2].
