Abstract

Organofluorophosphate hydrolases (DFPases) are a diverse and widespread group of enzymes that are able to hydrolyze the potent acetylcholinesterase inhibitors 0,0-diisopropylphosphofluoridate (DFP) and 0-1,2,2-trimethylpropylmethylphosphonofluoridate (soman). Two broad categories of DFPases are currently recognized.
