Group of fungal GH16 members related to Saccharomyces cerevisiae Crh1p. Chr1p and Crh2p are transglycosylases that are required for the linkage of chitin to beta(1-3)glucose branches of beta(1-6)glucan, an important step in the assembly of new cell wall. Both have been shown to be glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored. A third homologous protein, Crr1p, functions in the formation of the spore wall. They belongs to the family 16 of glycosyl hydrolases that includes lichenase, xyloglucan endotransglycosylase (XET), beta-agarase, kappa-carrageenase, endo-beta-1,3-glucanase, endo-beta-1,3-1,4-glucanase, and endo-beta-galactosidase, all of which have a conserved jelly roll fold with a deep active site channel harboring the catalytic residues.
