Measurement of Carboxylesterase (CES) Activities (Masakiyo Hosokawa, Chiba University, Chiba, Japan and Tetsuo Satoh, Biomedical Research Institute, Chiba, Japan). Mammalian carboxyesterase (CES) efficiently catalyzes the hydrolysis of a variety of ester- and amide-containing chemicals. CES is involved in detoxification or metabolic activation of various drugs, environmental toxicants, and carcinogens. This unit contains three protocols for measuring CES activities.
