Family: Bacterial_lip_FamI.6

Block: L

Parent Family: Bacterial_lipase


This family correspond to family I.6 of the classification of Arpigny and Jaeger (1999). These lipases differ from other bacterial lipases. They present high phospholipase A1 activity. The substrate-binding cavity contains two large hydrophobic acyl chain-binding pockets and a shallow and more polar third pocket that is capable of binding either a (short) fatty acid or a phospholipid head-group.
