Abstract

Acetylcholinesterase, butyrylcholinesterase, carboxylesterase, and paraoxonase activities in human, mouse, and rat blood were measured. The proportions of these enzymes activities differed signifi cantly. In humans, the most signifi cant were cholinesterase activities, while in rats and mice the contribution of carboxylesterase activity was the greatest. High arylesterase activity of paraoxonase was observed in all cases. Species-specifi c differences should be taken into consideration when carrying out preclinical trials on rodents for optimization of the pharmacokinetic characteristics of drugs containing complex ester groups. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
