November 27, 2018: Remember, remember... an end of November new CAZypedia CBM family page. The type C L-rhamnose binding CBM67 family is now on-line. Satoshi Kaneko authored the page and Harry Gilbert acted as responsible curator. Learn more about the CBM67 family on its CAZypedia page.
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.
