PL family classification article reveals PL subfamilies !!

A recent article by the CAZy team [1], defines and describes in an extended manner:

(i) the catalytic mechanisms covered by the PL classification;
(ii) the know PL activities and how these are distributed in the present PL families;
(iii) the diversity of folds exhibited in structurally characterized PL families;
(iv) the new layer of PL subfamilies that has been defined throughout the PL families.
