Description

General description

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

Application

Lipase from Mucor javanicus can be used to catalyze the production of polyglycerol polyricinoleate from polyricinoleic acid and polyglycerol-3.

Lipase from Mucor javanicus has been used in a study to assess the effects of lyophilization time and water content on the salt-induced activation of enzymes in organic solvents.

Biochem/physiol Actions

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

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 (30 minute incubation).

Analysis Note

Protein determined by biuret.
