Glycosyl hydrolase, all-beta (IPR013780)

Short name: Glyco_hydro_b

Overlapping entries


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 entry represents the all-beta domain superfamily that is found in several members of the glycosyl hydrolase family 13 and other glycosyl hydrolases. It is usually located C-terminal to the catalytic beta/alpha barrel domain. The structure of this domain has been found to be a Greek key beta-sheet fold [PMID: 7877175, PMID: 12547200, PMID: 15023061, PMID: 15003450].
