Lipase Activity for Lipid Hydroperoxides

Baba, Naomichi
Hirota, Naohisa
Abstract
Catalytic activity of lipase P (Amano) from pseudomonas fluorescens for lipid hydroperoxides were examined and in organic solvent the enzyme was found to catalyze acylation reaction of the hydroperoxy group in a stereoselective manner producing optically active hydroperoxy compounds, whereas in aqueous medium the lipase-catalyzed ester hydrolysis afforded a complicated mixture of unknown reaction products.
