Description

Analysis Note

Protein determined by biuret.

General description

Lipases are hydrolytic enzymes which break down triacylglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerols.

Packaging

1000000, 5000000 units in poly bottle

Unit Definition

One unit will hydrolyze 1.0 microequivalent of fatty acid from a triglyceride in 1 hr at pH 7.2 at 37 °C using olive oil (30 minute incubation).

Application

Lipase from C. rugosa is used to catalyze the synthesis of flavor esters such as pentyl propanoate and butyl butanoate used in food enhancement.

Lipase from Candida rugosa has been used in a study to assess the influence of phase segregation on enzyme hydrolytic activity.

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

Biochem/physiol Actions

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

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