Auxiliary Activity Families

From CAZypedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists all the Auxiliary Activity (AA) Family pages in CAZypedia that have been given Curator Approved status, as well as those that are currently under construction.

Overview

The original CAZy classification scheme aimed to describe the families of enzymes that cleave or build complex carbohydrates and the associated carbohydrate binding modules. The discovery that members of families CBM33 and family GH61 are lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases (LPMO), gave impetus to a reclassification of these families into a new category, the "Auxiliary Activities" [1]. The auxiliary activities are families of catalytic proteins that are potentially involved in plant cell degradation through an ability to help the original GH, PL and CE enzymes gain access to the carbohydrates comprising the plant cell wall. Currently, the AA families contain redox-active enzymes.

Curator Approved

Approve icon-50px.png
These pages have been approved by the Responsible Curator as essentially complete. CAZypedia is a living document, so further improvement of these pages is still possible; please see the individual pages for more information.

There are currently 2 Curator approved Auxiliary Activity (AA) Family pages in CAZypedia.


                  Under construction

                  Under construction icon-blue-48px.png
                  These pages are currently under construction in CAZypedia. As such, the Responsible Curator has deemed that the page's content is not quite up to CAZypedia's standards for full public consumption. All information on these pages should therefore be considered to be under revision and may be subject to major changes.

                  There are currently 4 Auxiliary Activity Family pages under construction in CAZypedia.


                              Unassigned pages

                              The following Unassigned pages are currently lacking a Responsible Curator and one or more Authors. If you are an expert on any of these families and would like to help us improve CAZypedia by getting involved with the production and maintenance of the corresponding page(s), please contact a member of the Board of Curators directly, or via this form.

                              All AA Family pages not listed above are currently unassigned. Please contact us if you'd like to get involved with the creation of these pages.
