Another major lipolytic enzyme, ATGL, favors TG substrates and is a rate-determining enzyme for lipolysis in adipose tissue [9, 30].
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).
(Analysis of activity was deter mined using the same colorimetric method described previously.) In fact, activity increased by as much as 50 to 70% in the samples containing 35 Pwt% and the lipolytic enzyme (Figure 5).

Activity assays for a number of classes of primarily hydrolytic enzymes are covered including hydrolases, lipolytic enzymes, proteases, and enantiomeric selective hydrolases.
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 4.0) methods.
