Herein we present a novel one-pot method for the chemical modification of elastin-like recombinamers (ELRs) in a mild and efficient manner involving enzymatic catalysis with Candida antarctica lipase B. The introduction of different functionalities into such ELRs could open up new possibilities for the development of advanced biomaterials for regenerative medicine and, specifically, for controlled drug delivery given their additional ability to respond to stimuli other than pH or temperature, such as glucose concentration or electromagnetic radiation. Candida antarctica lipase B immobilized on a macroporous acrylic resin (Novozym 435) was used to enzymatically couple different aminated substrates to a recombinamer containing carboxylic groups along its amino acid chain by way of an amidation reaction. A preliminary study of the kinetics of this amidation in response to different reaction conditions, such as solvent, temperature or reagent ratio, was carried out using a phenylazobenzene derivative (azo-NH) as a model. The optimal amidation conditions were used to couple other amine reagents, such as phenylboronic acid (FB-NH) or polyethylene glycol (PEG-NH), thus allowing us to obtain photoresponsive, glucose-responsive or PEGylated ELRs that could potentially be useful as sensors in devices for controlled drug delivery.

Compounds that increase the enzymatic activity of LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE. Lipoprotein lipase activators have a potential role in the treatment of OBESITY by increasing LIPID METABOLISM. Note that substances that increase the synthesis of lipoprotein lipase are not included here.
An inherited condition due to a deficiency of either LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE or APOLIPOPROTEIN C-II (a lipase-activating protein). The lack of lipase activities results in inability to remove CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES from the blood which has a creamy top layer after standing.
Colipase I and II, consisting of 94-95 and 84-85 amino acid residues, respectively, have been isolated from porcine pancreas. Their role is to prevent the inhibitory effect of bile salts on the lipase-catalyzed intraduodenal hydrolysis of dietary long-chain triglycerides.
A computer based method of simulating or analyzing the behavior of structures or components.
The metabolic process of breaking down LIPIDS to release FREE FATTY ACIDS, the major oxidative fuel for the body. Lipolysis may involve dietary lipids in the DIGESTIVE TRACT, circulating lipids in the BLOOD, and stored lipids in the ADIPOSE TISSUE or the LIVER. A number of enzymes are involved in such lipid hydrolysis, such as LIPASE and LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE from various tissues.
