Lipolytic enzymes work at low temperature, atmospheric pressure and are not aggressive to reactors and accessories which are closely associated with energy cost from the economic perspective (Al-Zuhair 2007).
In fact, activity increased by as much as 50 to 70% in the samples containing 35 Pwt% and the lipolytic enzyme (Figure 5).
arjuna did inhibit cholesterol biosynthesis and potentiate the activity of lipolytic enzymes to an early clearance of lipid from the circulation in triton induced hyperlipidemia.
Activity assays for a number of classes of primarily hydrolytic enzymes are covered including hydrolases, lipolytic enzymes, proteases, and enantiomeric selective hydrolases.
When properly conditioned, the lipolytic enzyme not only remains catalytically active after being pressed under typical manufacturing conditions (temperature and pressure) but also remains stable in pressed composites stored at room temperature.
In this study, the ability of commercial lipolytic enzyme Lipoprime 50T to catalyze the biotechnologically and environmentally important processes of rapeseed oil hydrolysis and transesterification were investigated and the optimal process conditions were determined using simple and accurate thin layer chromatographic, titrimetric and computer analysis (Micro image 4.
