PNLIPRP1, also known as PLRP1, belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily, Lipase family. PNLIPRP1 is structurally similar to PLRP2. However, these two proteins display different functional properties. PNLIPRP1 may function as inhibitor of dietary triglyceride digestion. It lacks detectable lipase activity towards triglycerides, diglycerides, phosphatidylcholine, galactolipids or cholesterol esters. PLRP2 hydrolyses milk fat with a lower catalytic efficiency than that of PL. PLRP2 activity, higher on homogenized than on native milk fat, is differently influenced by fatty acids and colipase depending on a proteolytic cleavage in the lid domain.
