Role of lipases in human metabolism
Languages of publication
Lipases play a crucial role in the metabolism of lipids in humans. These enzymes can be classified according to the location: located in the digestive juices (lingual lipase, gastric lipase and pancreatic lipase), located intracellularly (hormone-sensitive lipase and lysosomal acid lipase) and in the endothelial cells (lipoprotein lipase and hepatic lipase). In this review, we discuss the interrelationships of lipases, their structure in humans, how they are affected by hormones and the clinical aspects of their deficiency.
