4.3 Hydrolases

Polysaccharide hydrolases represent some of the most extensive collection of gene families known in plants. Although enzymatic activities have been demonstrated in many homologues from other plants, a systematic survey of the activities of each class and family member remains a major undertaking. Because the catalytic activity still needs to be established for most of the members, they have been classified according to phylogenies established by Henrissat and colleagues at CAZY.
