Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

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

Other Notes

Substrate specificity: preferentially hydrolyzes the 1- and 3-positions(middle to long fatty acids); optimum pH 5.0-7.0; optimum temperature 30-45°C; Selective enzymatic removal of protecting functions (C-terminal COOH function)

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 fatty acid from a triglyceride per minute at pH 7.7 and 40°C (olive oil as substrate)]; 300 U as described above are equivalent to ~1 U using triolein, Cat. No. 62314, at pH 8.0 and 40°C as substrate.
