CAZy | The carbohydrate-active enzymes database in 2013


Describes the families of structurally-related catalytic and carbohydrate-binding modules of enzymes that degrade, modify or create glycosidic bonds. CAZY is a knowledge-based resource that aims to link the sequence, the specificity and the 3D structural features of CAZymes, the Carbohydrate-Active enZymes. The CAZomes listed in the CAZy website correspond to protein models of finished genomes, i.e. with proteins released in the daily releases of GenBank.
