triacylglycerol

Glycerol esterified at each of its three hydroxyl groups by a fatty (aliphatic) acid; e.g., tristearoylglycerol. SYN: triglyceride.
- t. lipase the fat-splitting enzyme in pancreatic juice; it hydrolyzes t. to produce a diacylglycerol and a fatty acid anion; a deficiency of the hepatic enzyme results in hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia. SYN: lipase (2), steapsin, tributyrase, tributyrinase.
