Penaeus vannamei lipase was purified from midgut gland of whiteleg shrimp. Pure lipase (E.C. was obtained after Superdex 200 gel filtration and Resource Q anionic exchange. The pure lipase, which is a glycosylated molecule, is a monomer having a molecular mass of about 44.8 kDa, as determined by SDS-PAGE analysis. The lipase hydrolyses short and long-chain triacylglycerols and naphthol derivates at comparable rates. A specific activity of 1787 U mg−1 and 475 U mg−1 was measured with… CONTINUE READING
