Lipase molecule, computer model. Lipase is an enzyme that breaks lipids (fats) into fatty acids and glycerol. Human pancreatic lipase is the main enzyme responsible for breaking down fat in the human digestive system. In this model the molecule's shape (secondary structure) is seen, comprising alpha helices (coils, yellow), beta sheets (arrows, green) and linking regions (lines, blue).
