Description

Application

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

Biochem/physiol Actions

Candida rugosa lipase is known to catalyze hydrolysis reactions, especially the production of ricinoleic acid.

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