Description

Application

Lipases are used industrially for the resolution of chiral compounds and the transesterification production of biodiesel.

Lipases are used industrially for the resolution of chiral compounds and the transesterification production of biodiesel.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lipases catalyze the hydrolysis of triacylglycerols into glycerol and free fatty acids.

Lipases catalyze the hydrolysis of triacylglycerols into glycerol and free fatty acids.

Other Notes

Selective acylation and deacylation of furanose and pyranose derivatives; Enantioselective hydrolysis of 2-methyl 3-acetoxy esters; Resolution of the diols of bicycloheptane and bicyclooctane by enzymic hydrolysis; Glyceride synthesis

Unit Definition

1 U corresponds to the amount of enzyme which hydrolyzes 1 μmol acetic acid per minute at pH 7.4 and 40 °C (triacetin, Cat. No. 90240 as substrate) 50 U as described above are equivalent to ~1 U using triolein, Cat. No. 62314 as substrate, at pH 8.0 and 40 °C
