Rhizomucor miehei lipase is a carboxylesterase and belongs to the α/β-hydrolase family. It comprises a lid domain, hinge domain and a catalytic triad Ser?His?Asp/Glu. The three-dimensional structure is a α/β hydrolase fold which is very similar as that of esterase enzyme.
Lipase from Rhizomuco miehei has been used:
in the partial digestion of triacylglycerols (TAG)
in the digestion of (12-ricinoleoylricinoleoyl)diricinoleoylglycerol (RRRR) present in castor oil
in the hydrolysis of linseed oil
50, 250 mL in glass bottle
Lipase catalyzes the hydrolysis of monoacylglycerols and diacylglycerols and its activity is inhibited by divalent actions.Rhizomuco miehei lipase is an industrial enzyme with application in food, detergent and pharmaceutical industries. It is also used in immobilization studies for 1,3-dioleoyl-2-palmitoylglycerol (OPO) synthesis. Rhizomuco miehei lipase may have potential in producing biodiesel from waste cooking oil.
