ABSTRACT Paraoxonases are a group of enzymes with a high "substrate-promiscuity", being able to act on many structurally different compounds. To date, there is no consensus regarding the physiological substrate(s) of these enzymes. Recent data suggest that the N-acyl homoserine lactones (AHLs) produced by different Gram-negative bacteria, including the… CONTINUE READING
