The hydrolysis by 1,3-specific lipases (Humicola lanuginosa, Mucor miehei, Rhizopus delemar andRhizopus javanicus) of the highly symmetric, high molecular weight triglycerides fromCrambe abyssinica (Crambe) seed oil is studied in an AOT-stabilized microemulsion system. Enzyme kinetic data shows that, of the lipases studied,Rhizopus javanicus lipases exerts the highest hydrolytic activity towards this new seed oil.
