Hormone Sensitive Lipase (HSL)
Lipase, hormone-sensitive also known as LIPE is an enzyme that, in humans, is encoded by the LIPE gene. LIPE is an intracellular neutral lipase that is capable of hydrolyzing a variety of esters.[2] The enzyme has a long and a short form. The long form is expressed in steroidogenic tissues such as testis, where it converts cholesteryl esters to free cholesterol for steroid hormone production. The short form is expressed in adipose tissue, among others, where it hydrolyzes stored triglycerides to free fatty acids.

LIPE functions to hydrolyze the first fatty acid from a triacylglycerol molecule, freeing a fatty acid and diglyceride. It is also known as triglyceride lipase, while the enzyme that cleaves the second fatty acid in the triglyceride is known as diglyceride lipase, and the third enzyme that cleaves the final fatty acid is called monoglyceride lipase. Only the initial enzyme is affected by hormones, hence its hormone-sensitive lipase name. The diglyceride and monoglyceride enzymes are tens to hundreds of times faster, hence HSL is the rate-limiting step in cleaving fatty acids from the triglyceride molecule.

LIPE is activated when the body needs to mobilize energy stores, and so responds positively to catecholamines, ACTH, and negatively to insulin. Previously, glucagon was thought to activate LIPE, however the removal of insulin's inhibitory effects ("cutting the brakes") is the source of activation. The lipolytic effect of glucagon in adipose tissue is minimal in humans. LIPE may be activated by two mechanisms. In the first, phosphorylated perilipin A causes it to move to the surface of the lipid droplet, where it may begin hydrolyzing the lipid droplet. Also, it may be activated by a cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA). This pathway is significantly less effective than the first, which is necessary to lipid mobilization in response to cyclic AMP, which itself is provided by beta adrenergic stimulation of the glucagon receptor.
