  • CHARACTERIZATION OF A PARTIALLY PURIFIED DIACYLGLYCEROL LIPASE FROM BOVINE AORTA BIOCHIMICA ET BIOPHYSICA ACTA-LIPIDS AND LIPID METABOLISM Lee, M. W., Kraemer, F. B., Severson, D. L. 1995; 1254 (3): 311-318

    Abstract:

    A partially-purified diacylglycerol (DG) lipase from bovine aorta has been characterized with respect to the effects of lipid metabolites and two lipase inhibitors, phenylboronic acid and tetrahydrolipstatin (THL). DG lipase activity was determined by the hydrolysis of the sn-1 position of 1-[1-14C]palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycerol. The products of the lipase reaction, 2-monoacylglycerol (2-monoolein) and non-esterified fatty acids (oleate, archidonate) produced a concentration-dependent (20-200 microM) inhibition of DG lipase activity. Oleoyl-CoA and dioleoylphosphatidic acid also inhibited aortic DG lipase activity, but lysophosphatidylcholine had little or no effect. The inhibition of aortic DG lipase by phenylboronic acid was competitive, with a Ki of approx. 4 mM. THL was a very potent inhibitor of aortic DG lipase; the concentration required for inhibition to 50% of control was 2-6 nM. THL inhibition was reduced when the concentration of substrate in the assay was increased. Attempts to identify the aortic DG lipase by covalent-labelling with [14C]THL were unsuccessful. Immunoblotting experiments revealed that hormone-sensitive triacylglycerol lipase (HSL) could not be detected in bovine aorta.
