lipolysis

Lipid breakdown (HYDROLYSIS) into free fatty acids and glycerol under the influence of LIPASE. This is increased in DIABETES. Also known as adipolysis.

lipolysis

the enzymatic breakdown of triglyceride molecules, in muscle and adipose tissue, catalysed by the class of enzymes known as lipases. During endurance-type exercise, the rate of lipolysis is increased at both sites.
