This gene encodes a member of the carboxylesterase large 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 is expressed in several tissues, particularly in colon, trachea and in brain, and the protein participates in colon and neural drug metabolism. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported, but the biological validity and/or full-length nature of some variants have not been determined.[provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010] (from
Ichihara et al., Tsu, Japan. In Diabetol Metab Syndr, 2013
Further analysis using the 2D-DIGE connected with MALDI-TOF/TOF analysis, the expression of monoglyceride lipase (MGLL) was significantly up-regulated and that of carboxylesterase 3 (CES3) was significantly down-regulated in 6- and 25-week-old CP compared with age-matched control (WKY and Lean rats).
Gonzalez et al., Bethesda, United States. In Cell Metab, 2012
Serum metabolomics identified azelaic acid monoesters as significantly increased metabolites after TCDD treatment, due to downregulation of hepatic carboxylesterase 3 (CES3, also known as triglyceride hydrolase) expression in an arylhydrocarbon receptor (AhR)-dependent manner in mice.
Ghosh et al., Richmond, United States. In Am J Physiol Cell Physiol, 2012
This study provides the first evidence of functional compensation whereby increased expression of CES3 restores intracellular cholesteryl ester hydrolytic activity and free cholesterol efflux in CES1-deficient cells.
Harinath et al., Wardha, India. In Indian J Tuberc, 2012
OBJECTIVE: Prospective evaluation of inhouse developed SEVA TB ELISA using cocktail of Mycobacterial antigens ES-31 and EST-6 (containing ES-38 and ES-41) and their specific antibodies in the diagnosis of Tuberculous pleural effusion was done in a tertiary care hospital.
Harinath et al., Wardha, India. In Indian J Exp Biol, 2011
The present study was undertaken to find the usefulness of mycobacterial ES-31 serine protease as a marker to detect tuberculosis bacilli using fluorescein isothiocyanate conjugated anti-ES-31 serine protease antibody.
Harinath et al., Wardha, India. In Indian J Clin Biochem, 2010
The utility of mycobacterial ES-31, ES-43, EST-6 or ES-20 antigen as a biomarker for differentiation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli from nontuberculous mycobacteria was explored using Fluorescein isothiocyanate conjugated antibodies against these antigens.
Harinath et al., Wardha, India. In Indian J Clin Biochem, 2001
Analysis of tubercular antibody, circulating free and immune complexed antigen (CIC-Ag) was done in confimed pulmonary tuberculosis sera by ELISA, using ES-31 antigen and affinity purified anti ES-31 antibody.
