Figure 3

Enzymatic activities in the combined process. Schematic representation of all possible enzymatic activities involved in the combined degumming/transesterification process. Polar glycerol-phosphatide, resulting from PLA1 + LLPL-2 activities, and the phosphodiester group resulting from PLC cleavage, migrate to the aqueous phase together with the glycerine produced during transesterification (polar compounds highlighted by rectangles). LLPL-2, lyso-phospholipase; PLA1, phospholipase A1; PLC, phospholipase C.
