- ... Aryloxyphenoxypropionate (AOPP) herbicides with 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 alcohol, ...
