Liver esterases are heterogeneous enzymes responsible for detoxification of xenobiotics and activation of ester and amide prodrugs. They catalyze the hydrolysis of carboxylic esters to the corresponding alcohols and carboxylic acids.

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 is a urine test for the presence of white blood cells and other abnormalities associated with infection.
