Synonyms are paraoxonase and alpha-esterase. The systematic name is aryl-ester hydrolase. Arylesterases act on many phenolic esters. It is likely that the three forms of human paraoxonase are lactonases rather than aromatic esterases [7,8]. The natural substrates of the paraoxonases are lactones, with ()-5-hydroxy-6E,8Z,11Z,4Zeicostetraenoic-acid 1,5-lactone being the best substrate (S) Butanoic acid, 2-methyl-, 5-hexen-1-yl ester (G) 1,2,3 - propanetriol, homopolymer, ether with aliphatic alcohol (G) Polycarbonate polyurethane acrylate oligomer Summary: EPA expressed environmental concerns about air quality, water quality and stormwater impacts, and requested that the final EIS and ROD commit to all stated mitigation measures.
