The peculiar feature of lipases is the presence of a/AY hydrolase fold in the N-terminal domain which contains a buried active site in the form of a catalytic triad which is similar to the catalytic site of chemotrypsin, trypsin, serine proteases and other esterases (Brzozowski et al.
of Kalyani, India) does not aspire here to compile the wide variety of manifestation of chiralities in different biological systems, but describes several examples in order to provide a sense of how the interactions between the biologically active site residues and the substrate molecules influence reactions.
When MAO is used as cocatalyst, PBs with broad MWDs are produced because of the heterogeneous nature of the active sites [2, 3].
