  4. 4. Lipid Self-Assembly and Lipase Action

    University dissertation from Johanna Borné, Sofia Parken 5B, 222 42 Lund

    Author : Johanna Borné; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; specific activity.; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; vesicles; cubosomes; liquid crystalline phases; sodium oleate; oleic acid; diolein; monoolein; Oleic acid based acyl glycerols; Thermomyces lanuginosa lipase;

    Abstract : In this thesis the action of the Thermomyces lanuginosa lipase (TLL) on "real" substrates, that is, lipid aggregates - vesicles, micelles, emulsions, gels and liquid crystals is discussed. Even for a pure triolein, the system becomes quite complex as the lipolytic process starts, both in terms of structure and composition, involving 5 additional components - diolein (DO), monoolein (MO), oleic acid (OA), sodium oleate (NaO) and glycerol .
