Porcine liver Esterase has been used as a substitute for Leukocyte Esterase. White blood cells in the urine usually indicate a urinary tract infection. The leukocyte esterase (LE) test detects esterase, an enzyme released by white blood cells. Leukocyte esterase (LE) is a urine test for the presence of white blood cells and other abnormalities associated with infection.
Porcine Esterase UNIT DEFINITION: One unit will catalyze the hydrolysis of one micromole of ethyl butyrate to butyrate and ethanol per minute at pH 7.4 and 37C.
Porcine liver esterase is used to catalyze the hydrolysis of pentaacetyl catechin and epicatechin for use in pharmaceutical and industrial applications.
Pig liver Esterase is commonly used for kinetic resolutions and asymmetric synthesis in organic chemistry.
