The objectives of the present study on the lipase of Penicillium roqueforti were to study factors that affect lipase production by the organism, to partially purify the lipase, and to study factors that affect the activity of the lipase.It was felt that such a study may provide information to control undesirable rancidity in dairy and food products.Also, completion of the objectives would appear to be a logical step toward adapting the lipase of P. roqueforti to production of modified fat preparations for commercial use.
