Pancreatic lipase catalyzes the hydrolysis of extracellular triacylglycerols to yield diacylglycerols and long-chain fatty acids. The enzyme is active only when complexed with colipase protein and plays a major role in the digestion of dietary triacylglycerols in the small intestine (Carriere et al. 2000; Giller et al. 1992).
