Description

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.

Glycoside hydrolase family 43 GH43 includes enzymes with the following activities, beta-xylosidase (EC:3.2.1.37), alpha-L-arabinofuranosidase (EC:3.2.1.55); arabinanase (EC:3.2.1.99), and xylanase (EC:3.2.1.8).
