CAZypedia: Carbohydrate Binding Module Family 63


CAZypedia is a living encyclopedia of the carbohydrate-active enzymes and their associated carbohydrate-binding modules (CBMs) involved in the synthesis, modification, and degredation of complex carbohydrates. CBM63 is the carbohydrate binding domain of expansin, a protein which non-enzymatically loosens the plant cell wall. Here, we present an up-to-date mini-review of the structural and functional properties of CBM63. This is a living document which should be consistently updated to reflect the most recent research on CBM63 and its associated modules.
