Glycoside hydrolase, family 61 (IPR005103)

Short name: Glyco_hydro_61

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



O-Glycosyl hydrolases (EC:3.2.1.) are a widespread group of enzymes that hydrolyse the glycosidic bond between two or more carbohydrates, or between a carbohydrate and a non-carbohydrate moiety. A classification system for glycosyl hydrolases, based on sequence similarity, has led to the definition of 85 different families [PMID: 7624375, PMID: 8535779]. This classification is available on the CAZy (CArbohydrate-Active EnZymes) web site.

The only known activity within this family is that of endoglucanase (EC: GH61
