EbgC is required for full activity: it has been suggested to be involved in the rate-limiting degalactosylation step and/or in electrophilic catalysis by the EbgA active site Mg(2+). EbgC is a distant homolog of YiaL, YhcH and TabA(YjgK), all four match PF04074; although homologous to the beta subunit of the EbgAC evolved beta-galactosidase, no potential EbgA-like alpha subunit partners are apparent for the other three DUF386 family paralogs.
