The chitinolytic machinery of Serratia marcescens is one of the best known enzyme systems for the conversion of insoluble polysaccharides. This machinery includes three chitinases, a lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases and an N-acetylhexosaminidase. In this review we discuss the catalytic mechanisms of these enzymes as well as the structural basis of each enzyme's specific role in the chitin-degradation process.
