GDSL lipase/esterase (IPR001087)

Short name: GDSL

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


GDSL esterases and lipases are hydrolytic enzymes with multifunctional properties [PMID: 15522763]. This new subclass of lipolytic enzymes possesses a distinct GDSL sequence motif different from the GxSxG motif found in many lipases [PMID: 7610479]. Members include; Aeromonas hydrophila lipase, Vibrio mimicus arylesterase, Vibrio parahaemolyticus thermolabile haemolysin, rabbit phospholipase (AdRab-B), and Brassica napus anter-specific proline-rich protein.
