Purified Pseudomonas fluorescens lipase [EC 3.1.1.3] exhibited slight activity on water-soluble esters such as methyl butyrate, and this activity was increased on addition of Brij 58 (20 oxyethylene hexadecyl ether) to the solution. This stimulating effect of Brij 58 on...

A radiochemical assay for carboxylesterase based on the substrate methyl[1-14C]butyrate is described. The blank value corresponds to 1.04 micrograms (liver)-1.44 mg (plasma) of tissues with the highest and lowest activity respectively, which constitute the sensitivity of the method. The hydrolysis...

Carboxylesterase was purified from rat kidney in an electrophoretically homogeneous form by acetone precipitation, followed by successive chromatographies on DEAE-cellulose and hydroxyapatite and then isoelectric focusing. The purified enzyme catalyzed the hydrolyses of monoacylglycerols and short-chain triacylglycerols, such as tributyrin...
