Family Report for: Carb_B_Chordata


Block C
Parent Family : Carboxylesterase


This family was extracted from the previous Carboxylesterase COesterase family. This family corresponds to the Carbohydrate Esterase family CE10 in CAZy - Carbohydrate-Active enZYmes database (CE_10). Mammalian liver carboxylesterases (CESs; EC hydrolyze various xenobiotics and endogenous substrates with ester, thioester, or amide bonds and are thought to function mainly in drug metabolism and detoxication of harmful chemicals. CES1 is also responsible for hydrolysis of stored cholesterol esters in macrophage foam cells and release of free cholesterol for high density lipoprotein-mediated cholesterol efflux
