Short name: Pectate_lyase_PlyH/PlyE-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



Pectate lyase is responsible for the maceration and soft-rotting of plant tissue. It catalyses the eliminative cleavage of pectate to produce oligosaccharides with 4-deoxy-alpha-D-gluc-4-enuronosyl groups at their non-reducing ends. Pectate lyase is an extracellular enzyme and is induced by pectin. It is subject to self-catabolite repression, and has been implicated in plant disease.

This entry represents a group of pectate lyases, including PlyE and PlyH from Aspergillus nidulans [PMID: 16844780].
