GT36 is a deleted family

This family has been reclassified as a Glycoside Hydrolase Family, GH94, following a paper that revealed the evolutionary, structural and mechanistic relationship of these phosphorylases with the glycoside hydrolases of clan GH-L [1]. The distinction between phosphorylases related to glycoside hydrolases and those related to glycosyltransferases is discussed in detail on the Phosphorylases Lexicon page.
