Definition of the noun Colipase

What does Colipase mean as a name of something?


  1. [protein] A protein coenzyme secreted by the pancreas


  1. Colipase is a protein co-enzyme required for optimal enzyme activity of pancreatic lipase. It is secreted by the pancreas in an inactive form, procolipase, which is activated in the intestinal lumen by trypsin. Its function is to prevent the inhibitory effect of bile salts on the lipase-catalyzed intraduodenal hydrolysis of dietary long-chain triglycerides.
  2. colipase a.k.a. colipase, pancreatic is a gene.
