Catalytic Properties and Classification of Phosphoric Triester Hydrolases: Edta-Insensitive and Edta-Sensitive Paraoxonases in Sera of Non-Diseased and Diseased Population Groups
Phosphoric triester hydrolases (EC 3.1.8) are defined as enzymes acting on organophosphorus compounds, including esters of phosphonic and phosphinic acids, and on phosphorus anhydride bonds; the enzymes are subdivided into paraoxonase (EC 188.8.131.52) and DFP-ase (EC 184.108.40.206) .
