evolution
the glucuronoyl esterases evolve for hydrolysis of the ester linkages between 4-O-methyl-D-glucuronic acid of plant glucuronoxylans and lignin alcohols, one of the crosslinks in the plant cell walls
physiological function
Cip2 protein is a bimodular protein in which the catalytic module is connected to a carbohydrate binding module of family 1
physiological function
Cip2 protein is a bimodular protein in which the catalytic module is connected to a carbohydrate binding module of family 1; the enzyme plays an important role in microbial breakdown of plant cell walls. The microbial enzyme hydrolyses the ester linkages between 4-O-methyl-D-glucuronic acid of plant glucuronoxylans and lignin alcohols, one of the crosslinks in the plant cell walls

physiological function
the complete hydrolysis of lignocellulose requires the actions of a variety of enzymes, including those that cleave the linkage between lignin and hemicellulose. The enzyme glucuronoyl esterase cleaves the ester linkage between lignin alcohols and xylan-bound 4-O-methyl-D-glucuronic acid of hemicellulose
physiological function
the consensus sequence G-C-S-R-X-G features the characteristic serine residue involved in the generally conserved catalytic mechanism of the esterase family
physiological function
the enzyme plays an important role in microbial breakdown of plant cell walls. The microbial enzyme hydrolyses the ester linkages between 4-O-methyl-D-glucuronic acid of plant glucuronoxylans and lignin alcohols, one of the crosslinks in the plant cell walls
