Lipases, Cysteine-lipases, Catalytic triad, Enzyme activity, Digestive tract, Immunological response
Lipases, esterases and proteases constitute superfamilies of hydrolases not only play an important role in the immune system, but also as catalysts in biotechnology and organic chemistry. Mechanistically, they all involve a similar catalytic triad.
