IUBMB Comments
Cutin, a polymeric structural component of plant cuticles, is a polymer of hydroxy fatty acids that are usually C16 or C18 and contain up to three hydroxy groups. The enzyme from several fungal sources also hydrolyses the p-nitrophenyl esters of hexadecanoic acid. It is however inactive towards several esters that are substrates for non-specific esterases.
