Altogether our data supports a model in which lipoprotein biogenesis prevents life span extension by distributing lipids away from the intestine, and by negatively regulating the induction of authophagy-related and lysosomal lipase genes, thereby challenging the animal's ability to maintain lipid homeostasis and somatic maintenance," the authors wrote in the study.
The lipase (TcL) that we are going to discuss here belongs to Tribolium castaneum and is similar to human lysosomal lipase (HLL) and comes under the class of acidic lipase family, along with gastric and lingual lipase (Anderson and Sando, 1991).
castaneum, showing identity to human lysosomal lipase was selected for the identification of novel catalytic features of the enzyme.
