EC 3.1.1.34     
Accepted name: lipoprotein lipase
Reaction: triacylglycerol + H2O = diacylglycerol + a carboxylate
Other name(s): clearing factor lipase; diglyceride lipase; diacylglycerol lipase; postheparin esterase; diglyceride lipase; postheparin lipase; diacylglycerol hydrolase; lipemia-clearing factor
Systematic name: triacylglycero-protein acylhydrolase
Comments: Hydrolyses triacylglycerols in chylomicrons and low-density lipoproteins. Also hydrolyses diacylglycerol.
