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.

    Very useful phrase

    In my opinion, you are wrong. I'm sure. Let's discuss this. Email me at PM, we will talk.

    Yeah. In this blog, at least the commentators are normal .. And then they usually write in the comments all sorts of nonsense.

    I absolutely agree with you. There is something in this and I like your idea. I propose to bring it up for general discussion.
