    • 2 Pages

    4.2 CASE STUDY: LIPASES 4.2.1 Background Lipases are a type of hydrolases which catalyze the conversion of fats/oils to free fatty acids and glycerol. Lipases are placed after proteases and carbohydrases in the world enzyme market and have about 5% of enzyme market. They are one of the most important group of biocatalysts for biological applications and are quite important enzymes from both physiological and biotechnological view point. The rising interest in lipases is mainly because of wide industrial

    Effect of Temperature on the Rate of a Lipase Reaction I am going to look at the effect of temperature on the rate of a Lipase Reaction, and to look at this I will be changing the temperature variable. In order to measure this, I will be doing the following practical: 1) Add 5cm³ of milk and 1cm³ of Lipase solution at different temperatures. 2) Then I will measure the reaction every 30 seconds, from 30 seconds to 2 minutes with a pH probe (as lipase breaks down into fatty acids) to test

    An Investigation into the Effect of Lipase Concentration on the Hydrolysis Of Fats Using the data loggers a recording of the pH was taken every 5 seconds and for each experiment the data loggers produced graphs of the change in pH. From each of these graphs a gradient was calculated which showed the rate of pH change per second. Firstly I calculated the gradients by choosing the steepest section of the graph and dividing the change in pH of this section by the time. However this method proved

    The Effect of Temperature on an Enzyme's Ability to Break Down Fat Aim: To investigate the effect of temperature on an enzyme’s (lipase) ability to break down fat. Hypothesis: The graph below shows the rate increasing as the enzymes get closer to their optimum temperature (around 35 degrees Celsius) from room temperature. The enzyme particles are moving quicker because the temperature increases so more collisions and reactions occur between the enzymes and the substrate molecules

    The discoveries of Warren Tay and Bernard Sachs in 1881 and 1887 laid the groundwork for our current understanding of the disease that has plagued the Jews for generations. Named after these foundational researches, Tay-Sachs disease is a lysosomal storage disorder (LSD) that causes severe mental degeneration in the affected individuals (Valsamis and Valsamis 1963). The nature of the disease’s inheritance and the history of Eastern European Jews in small crammed communities and their resistance to

    • 2 Pages

    Lipase: Lipase is enzymes that speed up the reaction of breaking fat into fatty acids and glycerol. Lipase can be found in different kind of industry. It can be found in dairy industry, by lipase is used to break down the milk fats and give different flavour into the cheese. Those flavour came from when lipase turn fats into fatty acid. Lipase that are use to react is from the microbial that create bacteria. The bacteria that are created will create the lipase to react on product. Another object

    Lipase (E.C. 3.1.1.3) has shown its potential in catalyzing an esterification reaction (Rajendra et al., 2009; Sangeetha et al., 2011; Adlercreutz, 2013). The explorations of low-priced lipase sources have been carried out for industrial applications (Tuter et al., 2003; Haas et al., 2001; Abigor et al., 2002; Natarajan et al., 2010). One of lipase sources is rice bran, which can be used as a low-priced biocatalyst for an esterification reaction (Bharwaj et al., 2001; Chuang et al., 2010). However

    are triacyl glycerol acylhydrolases and belong to the class of serine hydrolases. Lipases catalyze a variety of chemical reactions which are found in a wide range including animals, plants and microorganisms (Jaeger and Eggert, 2002). Lipases catalyze both the synthesis of esters from glycerol and long chain fatty acids and the hydrolysis of triacylglycerols into fatty acids, partial acylglycerols and glycerol. Lipases are unique in catalyzing the hydrolysis of fats into fatty acids and glycerol at

    Lipases are particularly important due to the fact that they specifically hydrolyze acyl glycerol, oils and greases, which is of great interest for different industrial applications. A lipase is any enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of fats. Lipases are a subclass of the esterase. Lipases perform essential roles in the digestion; transport and processing of dietary lipids (e.g. triglycerides, fats, oils) in most, if not all, living organisms. Genes encoding lipases are even present in certain
