GH60 is a deleted family
Subsequent to family creation , it was shown that the actual activity was not glycosidic bond hydrolysis, as initially suggested.
Detailed sequence analyses show that the sequences in fact belong to metallopeptidase family M42. Evidence for peptidase activity was experimentally demonstrated by Cottrell et al. .
