Title: Lipases de látex vegetais: propriedades e aplicações industriais
Title Alternative: Plant lipases from latex: properties and industrial applications
Author: Paques, Fernanda Wiermann

Abstract: Biocatalysts have innumerous advantages with respect to classical chemical processes, such as high specificity. Lipases (EC are biocatalysts with large application in synthesis and hydrolysis reactions of triacylglycerols. The search for new sources of lipases has been intensified in the last years due to the high cost of microbial and animal lipases, wich restricts their use on an industrial scale. Lipases obtained from the latex of Carica papaya, Carica pentagona, Euphorbia characias, E. wulfenii, known for their proteolytic properties, are a good alternative source. In this review, we describe the well-known sources of vegetal lipases extracted from the latex and present some of their industrial applications.
