Abstract:Phospholipase is an enzyme that hydrolyzes phospholipids releasing a variety of products, like for example lyso-phospholipids, free fatty acids, di-acylglycerols, choline phosphate and phosphatidates, depending on the site of hydrolysis. In cheese production, lysophospholipids act as surface-active agents in the cheese curd, helping emulsification of water and fat during processing and reducing syneresis. Phospholipases are more specific and have little or no activity toward di-or triglycerides. As a…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
