Purpose of review The lipolytic catabolism of stored fat in adipose tissue supplies tissues with fatty acids as metabolites and energy substrates during times of food deprivation. This review focuses on the function of recently discovered enzymes in adipose tissue lipolysis and fatty acid mobilization. Recent findings The characterization of hormone-sensitive lipase-deficient mice provided compelling evidence that hormone-sensitive lipase is not uniquely responsible for the hydrolysis of… Expand
Lipolysis – A highly regulated multi-enzyme complex mediates the catabolism of cellular fat stores
TLDR
This review summarizes the current knowledge concerning the enzymes and regulatory processes governing lipolysis of fat stores in adipose and non-adipose tissues and special emphasis will be given to ATGL, its regulation, and physiological function. Expand
The Regulation of Lipolysis in Adipose Tissue
TLDR
Recent identification of the co-activator and inhibitor of ATGL have helped elucidate this important initial step of TAG breakdown, while also generating more questions. Expand
The role of neutral lipases in human adipose tissue lipolysis
TLDR
Two lipases the ‘old’ hormone sensitive lipase and the ’new’ adipose triglyceride lipase are of importance for the regulation of lipolysis in rodent fat cells, while adiposelycerine lipase seems essential for maintaining basal lipolytic activity, while hormonesensitive lipase is the enzyme most responsive to stimulated lipolytics. Expand
Adipose Triglyceride Lipase and Hormone-sensitive Lipase Are the Major Enzymes in Adipose Tissue Triacylglycerol Catabolism*
TLDR
Together, ATGL and HSL are responsible for more than 95% of the TG hydrolase activity present in murine WAT, suggesting that ATGL is the sole target for CGI-58-mediated activation of adipose lipolysis. Expand
Obese Yeast: Triglyceride Lipolysis Is Functionally Conserved from Mammals to Yeast*
TLDR
Yeast Tgl4 is identified as a functional ortholog of mammalian adipose triglyceride lipase, and Serine 315 in the GXSXG lipase active site consensus sequence of the patatin domain of Tgl3 is essential for catalytic activity. Expand
The Ins and Outs of Adipose Tissue
The aim of this chapter is to discuss what mechanisms are available to rapidly modulate fatty acid uptake/mobilization in adipose tissue. The major pathway for net uptake is lipoprotein lipaseExpand
Lipid droplets in lipogenesis and lipolysis.
TLDR
New data suggest that proteins previously implicated in vesicle trafficking, including Rabs, soluble N-ethylmaleimide sensitive factor attachment protein receptors (SNAREs), and motor and cytoskeletal proteins, likely orchestrate the movement and fusion of lipid droplets. Expand
Dual Lipolytic Control of Body Fat Storage and Mobilization in Drosophila
TLDR
Combined genetic, physiological, and biochemical analyses provide in vivo evidence that AKHR is as important for chronic accumulation and acute mobilization of storage fat as is the Brummer lipase, the homolog of mammalian adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL). Expand
Adipose Triglyceride Lipase (ATGL) and Hormone-Sensitive Lipase (HSL) Deficiencies Affect Expression of Lipolytic Activities in Mouse Adipose Tissues*
TLDR
It is found that ATGL-deficiency in brown adipose tissue had a profound effect on the expression levels of other lipolytic and esterolytic enzymes in this tissue, whereas HSL- deficiency hardly showed any effect in brown fat tissue. Expand
Minireview : Lipid Droplets in Lipogenesis and Lipolysis
Organisms store energy for later use during times of nutrient scarcity. Excess energy is stored as triacylglycerol in lipid droplets during lipogenesis. When energy is required, the storedExpand

The Central Role of Perilipin A in Lipid Metabolism and Adipocyte Lipolysis
TLDR
This review will focus on adipocyte lipolysis with emphasis on hormone signal transduction, lipolytic enzymes, the lipid storage droplet, and fatty acid release from the adipocyte. Expand
Decreased fatty acid esterification compensates for the reduced lipolytic activity in hormone-sensitive lipase-deficient white adipose tissue Published, JLR Papers in Press, August 16, 2003. DOI 10.1194/jlr.M300190-JLR200
TLDR
Results establish that in the absence of HSL, the reduced NEFA production is counteracted by a drastic reduction of NEFA reesterification that provides sufficient quantities ofNEFA for release into the circulation. Expand
Lipolysis in the absence of hormone-sensitive lipase: evidence for a common mechanism regulating distinct lipases.
TLDR
lipolysis is mediated not only by HSL but also by the non-HSL TG lipase, whose responses to lipolytic hormones are similar to those of HSL, and it is proposed that both lipases are regulated by common mechanism of lipolysis. Expand

TLDR
Basal hyperinsulinaemia, release of exaggerated amounts of insulin during glucose challenges and retarded glucose disposal during insulin tolerance tests suggest that HSL-null mice are insulin resistant, suggesting the presence of additional, although not necessarily hormone-activatable, triacylglycerol lipase(s). Expand
Fat Mobilization in Adipose Tissue Is Promoted by Adipose Triglyceride Lipase
TLDR
It is reported that a second enzyme, adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL), catalyzes the initial step in triglyceride hydrolysis, and it is interesting that ATGL contains a “patatin domain” common to plant acyl-hydrolases. Expand
Role of PAT proteins in lipid metabolism.
TLDR
This work has shown that phosphorylation of perilipin A is essential for HSL translocation and stimulated lipolysis, and this droplet is coated with perilIPin A, which is also phosphorylated by PKA in response to lipolytic stimuli. Expand
Hormone-sensitive lipase: control of intracellular tri-(di-)acylglycerol and cholesteryl ester hydrolysis.
TLDR
Accumulating evidence has defined important functions for HSL in normal physiology, affecting adipocyte lipolysis, steroidogenesis, spermatogenesis, and perhaps insulin secretion and insulin action; however, direct links between abnormal expression or genetic variations of HSL and human disorders, such as obesity, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and hyperlipidemia, await further clarification.

Carboxylesterase 3 (EC 3.1.1.1) Is a Major Adipocyte Lipase*
TLDR
Functional proteomics was used to detect non-HSL lipase(s) in mouse WAT and discovered two peaks of esterase activity using p-nitrophenyl butyrate as a substrate, which contained most of the lipase activity. Expand
Hormone-sensitive Lipase Deficiency in Mice Causes Diglyceride Accumulation in Adipose Tissue, Muscle, and Testis*
TLDR
In vivo results indicate that HSL is the rate-limiting enzyme for the cellular catabolism of DG in adipose tissue and muscle implying a substrate specificity of the enzyme in vivo. Expand
Perilipin A is essential for the translocation of hormone-sensitive lipase during lipolytic activation
TLDR
It is shown that HSL is basally associated with lipid droplet surfaces at a low level in perilipin nulls, but that stimulated translocation from the cytosol to lipid droplets is absent in adipocytes derived from embryonic fibroblasts of perilip in-null mice. Expand
