lipase

 [li´pās, lip´ās]
fat-splitting enzyme; any enzyme that catalyzes the splitting of fats into glycerol and fatty acids. Measurement of the serum lipase level is an important diagnostic test for acute and chronic pancreatitis.

li·pase

(lī'pās, lip'ās),
1. In general, any fat-splitting or lipolytic enzyme; a carboxylesterase, for example, triacylglycerol lipase, phospholipase A2, lipoprotein lipase.
2. Synonym(s): triacylglycerol lipase

lipase

(lĭp′ās′, lī′pās′)
n.
Any of a group of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of fats into glycerol and fatty acids.

li·pase

(lip'ās)
Any fat-splitting or lipolytic enzyme; a carboxylesterase.

lipase

An enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown (hydrolysis) of fat molecules to glycerol and fatty acids.

lipase

the enzyme that breaks down fat into fatty acids and glycerol. The main source is the PANCREATIC JUICE.

Lipase

A fat-splitting enzyme found in pancreatic juice, blood, and many tissues.

Thus, to improve recognition of apoB-48 by anti-peptide antibodies, we tested several delipidating agents, such as mixtures of alcohol/ethyl ether, ionic or nonionic detergents (SDS, Tween 20, CHAPS, octylglucoside), and enzymes (phospholipase, triglyceride lipase).
The mode of this action is stimulation of the expression of the triglyceride lipase enzyme and repression of the synthesis of its inhibitor, apo C-III [14,16].
