Family Report for: Plant_carboxylesterase


Block H
No plant Carboxylesterase show the SEDCLYLN motif (prosite PS00941). These carboxylesterase are related to the Hormone sensitive lipase. Gibbereline Insensitive Dwarf1 GID1 has a primary structure similar to that of the hormone-sensitive lipase. Gibberellins (GAs) are tetracyclic, diterpenoid plant hormones, essential for many developmental processes in higher plants HSLs. The nuclear GA receptor evolved from an esterase. 2-hydroxyisoflavone dehydratase from leguminosae also belong to this family, in these particular enzymes the catalytic serine is replaced by threonine. In tulips tuliposide-converting enzyme (TCE) purified from tulip bulbs catalyzed the conversion of tuliposides to tulipalins.The lactone-forming carboxylesterases, specifically catalyzing intramolecular transesterification, but not hydrolysis
