Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Catalyst for the enzymatic biosynthesis of polyglycerol polyricinoleate through a reversal of hydrolysis.

Tri-, di-, and monoglycerides are hydrolyzed (in decreasing order of rate).

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

Other Notes

Catalyst for the interesterification of oils and fats; For removal of interfering triglycerides in the electroimmunoassay of apolipoprotein B; Racemic epoxy ester resolution through enantioselective enzymatic hydrolysis

Note: When triacetin is used as substrate, the pH is 7.4. Incubation time: 60 minutes.

Unit Definition

1 U corresponds to the amount of enzyme which liberates 1 μmol of butyric acid per minute at pH 8.0 and 40°C (tributyrin, Cat. No. 91010 as substrate) 5000 U as described above are equivalent to ~1 U using triolein, Cat. No. 62314 as substrate, at pH 8.0 and 40°C

Application

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