We searched for quantitative trait loci (QTL) associated with the palm oil fatty acid composition of mature fruits of the oil palm E. guineensis Jacq. in comparison with its wild relative E. oleifera (H.B.K) Cortés. The oil palm cross LM2T x DA10D between two heterozygous parents was considered in our experiment as an intraspecific representative of E.(More)
Candida lipolytica YB 423-12 is able to incorporate fatty acid from the culture medium when lipids are used as carbon substrate. The composition of cell lipids is largely dependent on that of the culture medium. An important Δ 9 desaturase activity acts on incorporated palmitic and stearic acids; and Δ 11-eicosenoic and erucic acids are shortened to oleic(More)
Phenolic acid esters were synthesized by direct esterification catalysed by an immobilized lipase obtained from Candida antarctica. Esterification yields ranged from 3 to 98%; yields seem to be linked to the electronic distribution of phenolic acids which affects the reactivity of the carboxylic function. The carbon chain length of the alcohols also plays(More)
Intragastric fat digestion was investigated by analyzing the products of lipolysis and the gastric lipase (HGL) levels of premature infants fed with a formula enriched with medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and those of infants fed with human milk. Infants were fed using a gastric tube and the gastric contents were aspirated twice a day for 5 d, before and(More)
Latex from Caricaceae has been known since 1925 to contain strong lipase activity. However, attempts to purify and identify the enzyme were not successful, mainly because of the lack of solubility of the enzyme. Here, we describe the characterization of lipase activity of the latex of Vasconcellea heilbornii and the identification of a putative homologous(More)
We will consider the Grignard chemical deacylation to study the regioanalysis of triacylglycerols (TAGs). Using a given TAG structure, a cross-contamination model is developed and used for evaluating the incidence of the acyl migration and its influence on the accuracy of a regiospecific analysis of the molecule. Despite unavoidable isomerization, the newly(More)
In this study, we designed a specific, continuous, and sensitive UV spectrophotometric lipase assay using natural triacylglycerols (TAGs) from the Aleurites fordii seed oil (tung oil). alpha-Eleostearic acid (9,11,13-cis, trans,trans-octadecatrienoic acid) is the main fatty acid component (it accounts for up to 70%) of the TAGs from tung oil. The conjugated(More)
We chose an Elaeis interspecific pseudo-backcross of first generation (E. oleifera × E. guineensis) × E. guineensis to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for fatty acid composition of palm oil. A dense microsatellite linkage map of 362 loci spanned 1.485 cM, representing the 16 pairs of homologous chromosomes in the Elaeis genus from which we traced(More)
