Description

Application

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

Packaging

100000 units in glass bottle

1000000 units in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lipases catalyze the hydrolysis of esters in aqueous solutions and the synthesis of esters in non-aqueous solutions. They also produce hydroxyl and carboxylic groups through the hydrolysis of ester linkages in poly(ethylene terephthalate).

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

Unit Definition

One unit will hydrolyze 1.0 microequivalent of fatty acid from a triglyceride in 1 hr at pH 7.7 at 37 °C using olive oil.

Analysis Note

Protein determined by biuret.
