Production of enzyme (lipase) by submerged culture fermentation
Lipase is a enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of fats . Lipases are a subclass of the esterases. Most lipases act at a specific position on the glycerol backbone of a lipid substrate (A1, A2 or A3) (small intestine). For example, human pancreatic lipase (HPL), which is the main enzyme that breaks down dietary fats in the human digestive system, converts triglyceride substrates found in ingested oils to monoglycerides and two fatty acids. Lipase can also assist in the breakdown of fats into lipids in those undergoing pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy(PERT). It is a key component in Sollpura (Liprotamase). Lipases serve important roles in human practices as ancient as yogurt and cheese fermentation.
