CommentPF05448 AXE1 Acetyl xylan esterase (EC and cephalosporin c deacetylase (EC This domain can be found in several bacterial acetyl xylan esterase proteins. Acetyl xylan esterases are enzymes that hydrolyse the ester linkages of the acetyl groups in position 2 and/or 3 of the xylose moieties of natural acetylated xylan from hardwood. These enzymes are one of the accessory enzymes which are part of the xylanolytic system, together with xylanases, beta-xylosidases, alpha-arabinofuranosidases and methylglucuronidases; these are all required for the complete hydrolysis of xylan Some sequences were previously in the Bacterial_lipase family (thema-TM0077...). Members of the family were associated with IPR000734, the esterase and lipase active site serine. This family contains the carbohydrate esterase family seven (CE-7) see the CAZy (Carbohydrate-Active enZYmes server ) (CE_7)
