The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: aryldialkylphosphatase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: organophosphate hydrolase, paraoxonase, A-esterase, aryltriphosphatase, organophosphate esterase, esterase B1, esterase E4, paraoxon esterase, pirimiphos-methyloxon esterase, OPA anhydrase, organophosphorus hydrolase, phosphotriesterase, paraoxon hydrolase, OPH, organophosphorus acid anhydrase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): 3.5787811Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Acts on organophosphorus compounds (such as paraoxon) including esters of phosphonic and phosphinic acids. Inhibited by chelating agents; requires divalent cations for activity. Previously regarded as identical with EC arylesterase.
