Caption: Lipase. Computer artwork of a molecule of lipase. This is a type of biological catalyst (or enzyme) which is involved in the metabolism of fatty substances. The molecule has a long ribbon like structure. The colour-coding relates to the different amino acid chains which make up the enzyme. Each amino acid is shown as a different colour. Lipase is present in pancreatic juice. Its primary function is to digest fats by breaking them down into fatty acids and glycerol.
