What’s new

This section provides news on changes in CAZy interface, content, and related resources.

New reference for CAZy !

addition : 28 November 2013.

A new reference for the CAZy database ! In the lastest database issue of Nucleic Acids Research, we summarize the many changes that have occurred in the CAZy database during the last five years.

Read the Abstract or the full PDF .

New structure page

addition : 20 September 2013.

We have made a series of developments to provide additional information relevant to the three-dimensional structure of CAZymes such as the resolution (for crystal structures) and a description of the carbohydrate ligands found in the CAZyme binding sites.The structural biology community is invited to contact us to report the possible errors that might have slipped through our curation process.

New enzyme category in CAZy

addition : 21 March 2013.

Because lignin is invariably found together with polysaccharides in the plant cell wall and because lignin fragments are likely to act in concert with (LPMO), we have decided to join the families of lignin degradation enzymes to the LPMO families and launch a new CAZy class that we name "Auxiliary Activities" in order to accommodate a range of enzyme mechanisms and substrates related to lignocellulose conversion. Auxiliary Activities

New page layout !

addition : 22 November 2012.

Tired of overly long pages and long display times ? Check out the new page layout, with 1,000 entries at a time for All/Superkingdoms/Unclassified tabs and 100 entries at a time for Structure/Characterized tabs.

GH5 subfamilies now available !!

addition : 13 November 2012.

A recent article by the CAZy team defines subfamilies within the large GH5 family.

Details appear in Aspeborg H, Coutinho PM, Wang Y, Brumer H, Henrissat B (2012) Evolution, substrate specificity and subfamily classification of glycoside hydrolase family 5 (GH5). BMC Evol. Biol. 12:186 [PMID: 22992189]. The GH5 subfamilies now appear online at URL http://www.cazy.org/GH5_subfamilies.html
