Rabbit anti-Human CES1P1 (aa 50-78) polyclonal antibody for WB
CES1P1 (Carboxylesterase 1 Pseudogene 1) is a Pseudogene. This gene is a member of the carboxylesterase (CES) gene family. The family members are responsible for the hydrolysis or transesterification of various xenobiotics, such as cocaine and heroin, and endogenous substrates with ester, thioester, or amide bonds. They may participate in fatty acyl and cholesterol ester metabolism, and may play a role in the blood-brain barrier system. This gene does not encode a protein and the sequence is similar to the CES1 gene, so represents a pseudogene of the CES1 gene.
CES1P1 belongs to the type-B carboxylesterase/lipase family. In contrast to other members of the family, it is shorter and lacks the C-terminal part that contains the conserved Glu and His active sites, hence it probably has no esterase activity. Could be the product of a pseudogene. It is expressed in the placenta. Has no esterase activity.
