'''July 3, 2018:'''  ''Revenge of the Ruminococci.''  Three CBM families containing characterized CBM members from Ruminococcal bacteria are now on-line in CAZypedia; two of these families contain uniquely Ruminococcal CBMs.  '''[[User:Ana Luis|Ana Luis]]''' authored the pages (in one fell swoop) and '''[[User:Harry Gilbert|Harry Gilbert]]''' acted as responsible curator.

'''June 4, 2018:'''  ''When two worlds collide.''  The '''[[CBM81]]''' family has an interesting binding mechanism, mixing characteristics of both [[Carbohydrate-binding_modules#Types|type A]] and [[Carbohydrate-binding_modules#Types|type B]] CBMs.  The binding is enthalpically driven to soluble ligands, so by definition this is a [[Carbohydrate-binding_modules#Types|type B]] interaction;  however, the CBM binding face resembles the flat face of [[Carbohydrate-binding_modules#Types|type A]] (crystalline-polysaccharide binding) CBMs.  '''[[User: Marcelo Liberato|Marcelo Liberato]]''' [[author]]ed the [[CBM81]] page and '''[[User: Fabio Squina|Fabio Squina]]''' acted as the [[Responsible Curator]].  ''Find out more about the unusual family 81 CBMs [[CBM81|here]]''.

'''[[AA3]]''' comprises a number of FAD-dependent redox enzymes including cellobiose dehydrogenase, aryl alcohol oxidase/dehydrogenases, glucose oxidases and glucose dehydrogenases, pyranose dehydrogenase, alcohol oxidase, and pyranose oxidase across four subfamilies. '''''[[User:Roland Ludwig|Roland]]''' and '''[[User:Daniel Kracher|Daniel]]''' have done a monumental job in succinctly capturing the diversity of this family, which you can read about [[Auxiliary Activity Family 3|here]].''

'''2 May 2018:''' ''The [[CBM65]] page has been added to the CAZypedia fold.'' This is a small CAZy family with  two currently characterized members from an anaerobic cellulolytic ruminal bacterium.  The two [[CBM65]] members bind various beta-glucans and play an important role in enhancing enzymatic activity on substrate. The page was authored by '''[[User:Ana Luis|Ana Luis]]''' and '''[[User:Harry Gilbert|Harry Gilbert]]''' acted as responsible curator. ''Learn more about this CBM family [[CBM65|here]].''

'''13 February 2018:''' ''The intricacies of pectin deconstruction:'' Rhamnogalacturonan II (RGII) represents the most structurally complex plant cell wall polysaccharide currently known, the complete saccharification of which requires a battery of CAZymes.  Under the guidance of [[Responsible Curator]] '''[[User:Harry Gilbert|Harry Gilbert]]''', four new GH pages related to RGII deconstruction were [[Curator Approved]] today. Special thanks go to [[Author]]s '''[[User:Ana Luis|Ana Luis]]''' ('''[[GH106]]''', '''[[GH139]]''', and '''[[GH141]]''') and '''[[User:Didier Ndeh|Didier Ndeh]]''' ('''[[GH138]]''') for their hard work in putting these pages together.

Revision as of 09:54, 23 November 2018

November 23, 2018: Welcome to the CAZypedia fold CBM49! The crystalline cellulose-binding CBM49 CAZypedia page was authored by Breeanna Urbanowicz and Elizabeth Ficko-Blean. Breeanna Urbanowicz also acted as responsible curator. There is experimental evidence that rice CBM49 is cleaved post-translationally in vivo which probably plays an important role in plant growth. Find out more about the functionally interesting family 49 CBMs here.


October 11, 2018: Fall ushers in a new CAZypedia CBM family page. The chitin-binding and lytic polysaccharide monooxygenase associated CBM73 family is described in detail. Zarah Forsberg authored the page and Gustav Vaaje-Kolstad acted as responsible curator. Learn more about the CBM73 family on its CAZypedia page.


September 24, 2018: Revenge of the Ruminococci Part Deux. Two more CBM families from Ruminococcal bacteria are ready for reading. The CBM79 and CBM80 CAZypedia pages were authored by Immacolata Venditto and Harry Gilbert acted as responsible curator. These CBMs are important for enzyme targeting but also for targeting the entire cellulosome complex to substrate. More information on the CBM79 and CBM80 families can be found on their respective CAZypedia pages.
