The Rote of Plant and Microbial Hydrolytic Enzymes in Pesticide Metabolism


esters with carbonyl, phosphoryl, and thionyl linkages, are subject to enzymatic hydrolysis. Pesticide hydrolysis by esterases and amidases from plants and microorganlsms can serve as a deloxification or activation mechanism that can govern pesticide sel€ctivity or resistance, and initiate or determine the rate of pesticide biodegradation in the environment… (More)
