Antiobesity action of epsilon-polylysine, a potent inhibitor of pancreatic lipase.

In vitro, -polylysine (EPL) strongly inhibited the hydrolysis of trioleoylglycerol emulsified with phosphatidylcholine (PC) and taurocholate by either pancreatic lipase or carboxylester lipase. The EPL concentration required for 50% inhibition of pancreatic lipase, 0.12 microM, was eight times lower than the concentration of orlistat required for the same… CONTINUE READING
