Native polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis showed carboxylesterase (CES) to be the most abundant hydrolase in the liver and small intestine of humans, monkeys, dogs, rabbits and rats. The liver contains both CES1 and CES2 enzymes in all these species. The small intestine contains only enzymes from the CES2 family in humans and rats, while in rabbits and monkeys, enzymes from both CES1 and CES2 families are present. Interestingly, no hydrolase activity at all was found in dog small intestine… CONTINUE READING
