α/βHydrolase Fold: An Update

Author(s): David L. Ollis, Paul D. Carr.

Abstract:

The α/βhydrolase superfamily has rapidly expanded in recent years and continues to do so at an expeditious pace. According to the ESTHER database (http://bioweb.ensam.inra.fr/ESTHER) 29000 papers have been published cataloguing 89 family groups, comprising a total of 15438 gene loci and 666 structures. This paper presents a snapshot of the current family taxonomy, catalytic chemistries, structural topologies and useful technologies emerging from the knowledge base at the current time.
