EC 3.1 - Acting on ester bonds

Description

This subclass contains the esterase enzymes. The esterases are subdivided into those acting on carboxylic esters (EC 3.1.1), thiolesterases (EC 3.1.2), phosphoric monoester hydrolases, the phosphatases (EC 3.1.3), phosphodiester hydrolases (EC 3.1.4), triphosphoric monoester hydrolases (EC 3.1.5), sulfatases (EC 3.1.6), diphosphoric monoesterases (EC 3.1.7) and phosphoric triester hydrolases (EC 3.1.8). The nucleases, previously included under EC 3.1.4, are now placed in a number of new sub-subclasses: the exonucleases (EC 3.1.11-16), and the endonucleases (EC 3.1.21-31).
