DESCRIPTION
Also known as CHBG_PROMH, chbG. Involved in the degradation of chitin. ChbG is essential for growth on the acetylated chitooligosaccharides chitobiose and chitotriose but is dispensable for growth on cellobiose and chitosan dimer, the deacetylated form of chitobiose. Deacetylation of chitobiose-6-P and chitotriose-6-P is necessary for both the activation of the chb promoter by the regulatory protein ChbR and the hydrolysis of phosphorylated beta-glucosides by the phospho-beta-glucosidase ChbF. Catalyzes the removal of only one acetyl group from chitobiose-6-P to yield monoacetylchitobiose-6-P, the inducer of ChbR and the substrate of ChbF. Homodimer.
