Can anbody please clarify the following doubts I have?

Phytases are enzymes usefull in hydrolzing phytate ie.the organic source of phosphorus. Acid phosphatases are enzymes which solubilize inorganic phosphorus.

In the literatue available it is mentioned that phytases are a gruop of phosphatases and some people say phosphatases are a group of phytases

Which is correct? and I would like to know the classification of both phytases and phosphatases. could anbody in this field help me out

Let's start with clear definitions; the rest will follow. (Alternative
definitions may be possible.)

A phosphatase is an enzyme that removes phosphate. (Defining it in
terms of solubilizing phosphate is less clear.)

A phytase is an enzyme that removes phosphate from phytic acid.


If you agree with that, then it follows that a phytase is a specific
kind of phosphatase.
