Synthèse enzymatique de phospholipides structurés riches en DHA

Abstract : The enzymatic synthesis of structured phsopholipids enriched in DHA and caprylic acid (PC DHA-C8) is studied. Two different ways are studied, acidolysis and esterification. An enzymatic screening led to the choice of the immobilized lipase from Thermomyces lanuginosa (TL-IM) for the 2 reactions. Parameters of the acidolysis reaction between carpylic acid (C8:0) and sunflower phosphatidylcholine (PC) were optimized by means of an experimental design. The optimum conditions determined are a temperature of 38°C, an aw of 0.7, an amount of enzyme of 15% of the mass of substrate and a molar ratio of C8:0/PC of 18. These conditions were applied to the acidolysis of microalgal phospholipids from T. lutea, rich in DHA, in order to produce PC DHA-C8. The other studied reaction is the lipase catalyzed esterification of GPC with C8:0 and DHA in a solvent-free medium This reaction has been optimized by studying each factor independently. The parameters studied are the temperature, the amount of lipase, the molar ratio GPC/C8:0/DHA and the use of reduced pressure. In order to obtain PC DHA-C8, each of theses parameters are respectively set at: 45°C, 20% of enzyme, a molar ratio of 1/3/15 and a pressure of 100 mbar. The production of PC DHA-C8, although optimized, does not exceed a yield of 2%. However, during this experiment, a high production of LPC DHA is observed, up to 16% without optimization of the synthesis parameter.
