Immobilization of proline activated lipase within metal organic framework (MOF).

The immobilization of enzyme with enhanced catalytic activity is the major challenge. In this work, we have activated the lipase in the presence of proline and successfully immobilized into zeolitic i...

In silico and in vitro study of the inhibitory effect of anti-inflammatory drug betamethasone on two lipases.

•Background: For the first time, the anti-inflammatory drugs: celecoxib, aspirin DL-lysine, niflumic acid, naproxen sodium, ibuprofen, and betamethasone are investigated for their inhibition activit...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Measurable quantity of bacteria in an object, organism, or organism compartment.

Purulent infection of one of the sebaceous glands of Zeis along the eyelid margin (external) or of the meibomian gland on the conjunctival side of the eyelid (internal).

The quantity of measurable virus in a body fluid. Change in viral load, measured in plasma, is sometimes used as a SURROGATE MARKER in disease progression.
