ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
lipoprotein lipase.
Alternative Name(s)
clearing factor lipase.
diacylglycerol lipase.
diglyceride lipase.
Reaction catalysed
a triacylglycerol + H2O <=> a diacylglycerol + a fatty acid + H(+)
  • Hydrolyzes triacylglycerols and diacylglycerol in chylomicrons and low-density lipoprotein particles (VLDL).
  • Human protein purified from post-heparin plasma (LPL) shows no activity against triglyceride in the absence of added lipoprotein.
  • The principal reaction sequence of that enzyme is triglyceride -> 1,2-diglyceride -> 2-monoglyceride.
  • The hepatic enzyme (LIPC) also hydrolyzes triglycerides and phospholipids present in circulating plasma lipoproteins.
