Overview

Enzymatic methods of lipid modification, particularly of fats and oils, have developed rapidly since the 1980s. In parallel to the rapid progress in research a wide range of applications have emerged, e.g. in the food industry.
The book is written by leading experts in the field and reflects the state-of-the-art of enzymatic lipid modification. It provides the reader with guidelines how to select suitable enzymes and how to apply them efficiently.
Applications of lipases and phospholipases, lipoxygenases and P450-monooxygenases and the use of whole-cell systems in lipid modification are described. Cloning, expression and mutagenesis as well as attempts to understand the molecular basis of specificity and stereoselectivity are outlined. In addition engineering aspects and the choice of solvent systems are addressed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is a necessary] supplementation in the library of biotechnologists, process engineers, food technologists, biologists and chemists."
- AFS - Advances Food Sciences, 2001; Vol. 23; No. 1
From The Critics
Modifications of fats and oils are now possible using biocatalysts. This book presents the state of the art of lipid modification by lipases, phospholipases, lipoxygenases, and P450-monooxygenases. It reviews the latest understanding of enzyme mechanisms, describes recent developments in molecular biology, and discusses biochemical engineering tools to optimize biocatalyst performance. The book is of interest to biotechnologists, process engineers, food technologists, biologists, and chemists. Specific topics include the fractionation of fatty acids and lipids using lipases, lipid modification in water-in- oil microemulsions, enzymatic conversions of glycerophospholipids, and phospholipases used in lipid transformation. Bornscheuer teaches in the Department of Technical Chemistry and Biotechnology at the University of Greifswald, Germany. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
