Lipase

  • Lipase is an enzyme that hydrolyzes lipids and the ester bonds in triglycerides, to form fatty acids and glycerol.
  • Lipases serve important roles in yogurt and cheese fermentation.
  • However, lipases are also being exploited as cheap and versatile catalysts to degrade lipids in more modern applications such as baking, laundry detergents and even as biocatalysts in alternative energy strategies to convert vegetable oil into fuel.
