Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This is a family of alpha-1,3-glucanases belonging to glycoside hydrolase family 71 (GH71). Endo-1,3-alpha-glucanase Agn1 hydrolyses septum-edging material and acts in concert with endo-(1,3)-beta-glucanase Eng1 to achieve efficient cell separation in fission-yeast [PMID: 15194814].

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.
