Tuning lipase activity with perfluoro carboxylic acids as additives

Author affiliations

Abstract

Perfluoro fatty acids of diverse chain length can be used as additives to tune lipase activity, as documented for the thermostable lipase of the bacterium Thermoanaerobacter thermohydrosulfuricus that showed up to 260% activity enhancement upon incubation with perfluorodecanoic acid.
