PL19 is a deleted family
Entries in Glycoside Hydrolase Family 91 were reclassified to Polysaccharide Lyase Family 19 on 30 July 2008 due to recommendations of the NC-IUBMB, which stated that these enzymes are lyases, as there is no water involved in the reaction. Indeed, polysaccharide cleavage occurs via intramolecular hydroxide attack, rather than glycosidic bond hydrolysis (see EC 22.214.171.124 and EC 126.96.36.199).
The family was placed back to Glycoside Hydrolase Family 91 on 20 April 2010 due to direct analogy with the lytic transglycosidases of GH23, GH102, GH103, and GH104 and in particular the observation of a hydrolase (di-fructofuranose 1,2':2,3' dianhydride hydrolase, DFA-IIIase) in this family [1, 2, 3].
