Abstract Chicken and ox liver carboxylesterases are inhibited irreversibly by α-bromoacetophenone. A kinetic analysis of the process indicates that inhibition occurs at the active site by reaction with a group of pKa′ 6.15 which is reactive in the basic form. Using [14C]bromoacetophenone, it has been shown that loss of activity is accompanied by incorporation of one molecule of inhibitor per active site, together with some non-specific reaction. Acid hydrolysis of the inhibited enzyme leads to a number of radioactive products, including 1- and 3-phenacylhistidines. Chicken liver carboxylesterase is irreversibly inhibited by methyl p-nitrobenzenesulfonate. This inhibition is prevented by the presence of the competitive inhibitor, n-propanol.
