The selective breakdown by autophagy of lipid droplet (LD)-stored lipids, termed lipophagy, is a lysosomal lipolytic pathway that complements the actions of cytosolic neutral lipases. The physiological importance of lipophagy has been demonstrated ... Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism, 12 hours ago
GPIHBP1, a GPI-anchored protein in capillary endothelial cells, is crucial for the lipolytic processing of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRLs). GPIHBP1 shuttles lipoprotein lipase (LPL) to its site of action in the capillary lumen and is essential ...Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism, 1 month ago
A freshly minted study indicates that copper could help restore a natural way to burn fat. Copper, it turns out, can alter the balance of metabolic accounts through its influence on a biochemical signaling pathway. That copper is connected to fat ...Genetic Engineering News, 3 weeks ago

PARTIAL PURIFICATION OF A BIOCHEMICALLY ACTIVE AND STABLE LIPASE FROM A MICROORGANISM ISOLATED FROM DIESEL CONTAMINATED SOIL
Lipases are defined as triacylglycerol acylhydrolases (EC 18.104.22.168) and are involved in the hydrolysis of fats and oils to yield glycerol and free fatty acids. A bacterial strain, isolated from the soil contaminated with diesel oil exhibited ...SlideShare.net, 1 month ago
