Domain

Glycosyl hydrolase family 53 (IPR011683)

Short name: Glyco_hydro_53

Domain relationships

None.

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.

This domain is found in family 53 of the glycosyl hydrolase classification [PMID: 12691742]. These enzymes are endo-1,4- beta-galactanases (EC:3.2.1.89). The structure of this domain is known [PMID: 12484750] and has a TIM barrel fold.
