The Lexicon entry Glycosyltransferases contains an introduction and overview to this class of enzymes. The classification mirrors that of the CAZy database [1, 2, 3], which itself is based on the sequence-based families of glycosyltransferases as described in [4, 5, 6, 7].
Note: The GT pages are still very much in a beta test stage, especially regarding standardization of the style and content. We therefore welcome input from the community on these issues. Likewise, if you would like to offer to act as a Responsible Curator or Author of a GT page, please contact us. You can reach the CAZypedia team using this form, or by contacting the Primary Curator directly.
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 1 Curator Approved Glycosyltransferase (GT) Family pages in CAZypedia.
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 no pages in this category.
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 GT Family pages not listed above are currently unassigned. Please contact us if you'd like to get involved with the creation of these pages.
