For explaining the action pancreatic lipase, my book wrote this equation:-
$$fatspace particles + lipase ightarrow fattyspace acid + glycerol + lipase$$
But for intestinal lipase, my book has a different equation:-
$$fatspace particles + lipase ightarrow monoglyceride + fattyspace acid$$
So, did my book make a mistake or are intestinal and pancreatic lipases different?
Pancreatic lipase and intestinal lipase are almost same in their functions. In the intestine, the name of the lipase is a triacylglycerol acyl hydrolase it also called colipase dependent lipase or Pancreatic lipase, Free fatty acids, and 2-monoacylglycerol are the primary products of lipid digestion in the jejunum. and Pancreatic Lipase also produces Free fatty acids and 2- monoacylglycerol.
so we can say that both enzymes are almost same and produce the same products.
