(1) Parenchymal and non-parenchymal cells were isolated from rat liver. The characteristics of acid lipase activity with 4-methylumbelliferyl oleate as substrate and acid cholesteryl esterase activity with cholesteryl[1-14C]oleate as substrate were investigated. The substrates were incorporated in egg yolk lecithin...

The possible presence of an inhibitor of pancreatic lipase (triacylglycerol acylhydrolase, EC 184.108.40.206) was screened in 54 marine algae. An active inhibitor, caulerpenyne, was purified from an extract of Caulerpa taxifolia, using ethyl acetate extraction, followed by successive chromatographies on...
