hormone-sensitive lipase


Also found in: Acronyms, Wikipedia.

hormone-sensitive lipase

an enzyme that catalyzes the release of fatty acids from adipose tissues.

hormone-sensitive lipase

enzyme responsible for hydrolysis of triglyceride molecules and therefore release of free fatty acids and glycerol. It functions mainly in adipose tissue and muscle. Activity of the enzyme in both sites is increased during endurance-type exercise, providing free fatty acids for resynthesis of ATP.
