LIBRARY Lipase enzyme. Computer-generated molecular model of lipase, a type of biological catalyst or enzyme which is involved in the metabolism of fatty substances. The molecule consists of a protein backbone which is colour-coded from blue to yellow. This colour code shows how much the molecule deforms, with blue areas moving least and yellow areas moving most. Calcium ion cofactors are white. Cofactors are low-weight, non-protein atoms or molecules whose presence is required for an enzyme to work. Lipase reacts with glyceride.
