Abstract 1. 1. In order to provide an additional parameter by which the interrelationships of the multiple forms of vertebrate esterases might be evaluated, the molecular weights of more than ninety of these enzymes have been estimated. 2. 2. The animal sources of these enzymes included pig, sheep, horse, ox, opossum, guinea pig, rat and chicken. 3. 3. The arylesterases (EC 3.1.1.2) and acetylesterases (EC 3.1.1.6) of these animals each appear to exist within a narrow, distinctive molecular weight range. Cholinesterase (EC 3.1.1.8) activity was found to occur as two main size groups, and carboxylesterases (EC 3.1.1.1) occurred as three main molecular weight species. 4. 4. The contribution of these molecular weight data to previous studies on the isoenzyme status of esterases has been discussed, as well as their relation to the problem of esterase classification and enzyme evolution.
