Partial AB-hydrolase lipase domain (IPR006693)

Short name: AB_hydrolase_lipase

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



The alpha/beta hydrolase fold is common to several hydrolytic enzymes of widely differing phylogenetic origin and catalytic function. The core of each enzyme is similar: an alpha/beta sheet, not barrel, of eight beta-sheets connected by alpha-helices [PMID: 1409539]. This entry represents the N-terminal part of an alpha/beta hydrolase domain found in a number of lipases.
