CES2 is a member of the carboxylesterase largefamily. The family members are responsible for the hydrolysis ortransesterification of various xenobiotics, such as cocaine andheroin, and endogenous substrates with ester, thioester, or amidebonds. They may participate in fatty acyl and cholesterol estermetabolism, and may play a role in the blood-brain barrier system.The protein encoded by this gene is the major intestinal enzyme andfunctions in intestine drug clearance.
