  Domain Name: Lipase_3
Lipase (class 3). Lipases are esterases that can hydrolyze long-chain acyl-triglycerides into di- and monoglycerides, glycerol, and free fatty acids at a water/lipid interface. A typical feature of lipases is "interfacial activation," the process of becoming active at the lipid/water interface, although several examples of lipases have been identified that do not undergo interfacial activation . The active site of a lipase contains a catalytic triad consisting of Ser - His - Asp/Glu, but unlike most serine proteases, the active site is buried inside the structure. A "lid" or "flap" covers the active site, making it inaccessible to solvent and substrates. The lid opens during the process of interfacial activation, allowing the lipid substrate access to the active site.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
