- ... Aryloxyphenoxypropionate (AOPP) herbicides with a chiral center are widely used to selectively remove annual and perennial grasses. However, the study of the enzymes involved in enantioselective degradation of AOPP herbicides is limited. A novel family VIII carboxylesterase gene, estwx, hydrolyzed the ester bond cleavage of AOPP herbicides to form the corresponding acid and alkyl side chain alcoho ...
