Summary

Various databases that provide information on glycoenzymes are available on the Internet. In addition to the common protein databases there are several resources that specialize in glycoenzymes or contain an individual subsection for this kind of enzyme. This chapter provides an overview of existing databases aside from CAZy, such as the GlycoGene DataBase, KEGG, the CFG databases, ExPASy ENZYME, and BRENDA, and lists the kind of data that can be found in the individual resources. The majority of the specialized databases contain information on glycosyltransferases involved in glycan biosynthesis, while data on carbohydrate degrading enzymes is less often found.
