Arpigny_Jaeger Report for: Family_III

Arpigny Jaeger Family III

Esther family

This family differs substantially from the cutinase acetyl-xylan esterase family. Several cutinases from the genus Thermobifida act on biodegradable plastics such as synthetic polyesters. Not all cutinases can degrade polyester plastics. Aerial plant organs are protected by a cuticle composed of an insoluble polymeric structural compound, cutin, which is a polyester composed of hydroxy and hydroxyepoxy fatty acids. Cutinases are lipases with a specificity for p-nitrophenyl acyl esters with short chain acyl group. This family was extracted from the Bacterial_lipase family which is close to PAF-Acetylhydrolase family. Streptomyces exfoliatus lipase (1JFR) Pseudomonas mendocina lipase (2FX5) are included in this family. This family correspond to family III of the classification of Arpigny et al 1999
