Something about Esterase
« on: May 26, 2015, 02:49:05 AM »
What is esterase? We can search the answer on website. It says that Esterase is a hydrolase enzyme that makes esters to split into an acid and an alcohol within the human body. A hydrolase is an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of a chemical bond. When these two components are mixed with water, it is called hydrolysis. A broad range of various esterases exist that differ in their substrate (substrate is a molecule upon which an enzyme acts) specificity, their protein structure, and their biological function.

And there are many kinds of esterase. They are Cholesterol esterase, Leukocyte esterase, Cholinesterase, and so on. But we hardly know what they are and what they can do. And the only thing we are sure about is that esterase can be used in clinical medicine. We do enjoy the benefit of it.

Creative Enzymes provide Native Saccharomyces cerevisiae Esterase, Native Rhizopus oryzae Esterase, Native Rabbit Esterase, Native Porcine Esterase, etc.
