Resolution of chiral compounds | Transesterification production of biodiesel.
|Alternate Names||E.C. 18.104.22.168; Steapsin; Glycerol ester hydrolase; Tween hydrolase; Tributyrase; PPL; Triacylglycerol acylhydrolase; Triacylglycerol lipase|
|Application Notes||Lipases are used industrially for the resolution of chiral compounds and the transesterification production of biodiesel.|
|Base Catalog Number||100817|
|Biochemical Physiological Actions||Lipases catalyze the hydrolysis of esters in aqueous solutions and the synthesis of esters in non-aqueous solutions. They also produce hydroxyl and carboxylic groups through the hydrolysis of ester linkages in poly(ethylene terephthalate). Lipases catalyze the hydrolysis of triacylglycerols into glycerol and free fatty acids.|

|Isoelectric Point||Lipase A = 4.9 and Lipase B = 5.0 (Lit.)|
|Molecular Weight||238.202 g/mol|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Eyeshields, Gloves, respirator filter|
|Specific Activity||>12,000 u/g solid|
|Unit Definition||One unit will liberate 100 µ moles fatty acid per hour at pH 7.8 and 37 °C using olive oil emulsion as substrate.|
