The relative rates of hydrolysis of the secondary ester in glycerol 1,3-benzylidene 2-oleate and in glycerol 1,3-dihexadecyl ether 2-oleate, and of the primary and secondary esters in triolein were determined. Both unaltered and selectively inactivated rat pancreatic juice were used as sources of enzyme. It was found that rat pancreatic juice contains an enzyme that can hydrolyze fatty acids esterified at the 2-position of a glyceride. This enzyme is not pancreatic lipase. It may be sterol… CONTINUE READING
