Comments
This enzyme is homologous to carboxylesterase 2 (EC 3.1.1.1; S00345 in EzCatDB), bile salt-activated lipase (EC 3.1.1.3, 3.1.1.13; S00347 in EzCatDB) and carboxypeptidase Y (EC 3.4.16.5; D00189 in EzCatDB), which belong to alpha/beta-hydrolase superfamily.
According to the literature [4] and [5], feruloyl esterases (EC 3.1.1.73) are subdivided into four sub-classes, type A to D, based on the sequence and substrate specificity. This enzyme belongs to the type-A sublclass (see [4]).
This enzyme has got a catalytic triad, composed of Ser133, Asp194 and His247, as well as an oxyanion hole, composed of mainchain amide groups of Thr68 and Leu134, which may facilitate the same catalytic reaction as other homologous enzymes in the alpha/beta-hydrolase superfamily (see [3], [4], [5] and [6]).
