  1. 1. Lipoprotein lipase : mechanism for adaptation of activity to the nutritional state

    Author : Gengshu Wu; Thomas Olivecrona; Gunilla Olivecrona; Peter Nisson-Ehle; Umeå universitet; []

    Abstract : Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is an enzyme to hydrolyze triglycerides in lipoproteins and thereby make the fatty acids available for cellular metabolic reactions. Short-term fasting down-regulates LPL activity in adipose tissue. This regulation is through post-translational mechanism. READ MORE

    Abstract : Obesity is a major health problem in the world that increases the occurrence of type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The reason for obesity is a dysfunction in the regulation of energy balance. It has been shown that dietary fat induces satiety as long as this nutrient stays in the intestine. READ MORE

  4. 4. Monoglyceride Lipase and Hormone-Sensitive Lipase - Molecular and structural aspects

    Author : Marie Karlsson; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []

    Abstract : Triglycerides in the adipocyte are hydrolysed by means of three consecutive reactions through the combined action of two lipases: hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) and monoglyceride lipase (MGL). HSL catalyses the first and rate-limiting step, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Protein Engineering of Candida antarctica Lipase A : Enhancing Enzyme Properties by Evolutionary and Semi-Rational Methods
