lip·o·pro·tein li·pase

(lip'ō-prō'tēn lī'pās, lī'pō-),
An enzyme that hydrolyzes one fatty acid from a triacylglycerol; its activity is enhanced by heparin and inactivated by heparinase. It is activated by apolipoprotein C-II; a deficiency of lipoprotein lipase is associated with familial hyperlipoproteinemia type I.
