Pancreatic Lipase, also designated as pancreatic triacylglycerol acyl hydrolase, PL or PTL belongs to AB hydrolase superfamily. It is a 56kDa protein secreted by pancreas which is essential for the efficient digestion of dietary fats. Pancreatic Lipase hydrolyses insoluble, emulsified triglycerides into diglycerides, monoglycerides and free fatty acids in the intestine. Exocrine pancreas failure or pancreatic insufficiency results in steatorrhoea or steatorrhea, where increased fat excretion is seen in fecal samples.
