Oleuropein is able to activate pepsin on the one hand but has inhibitory effects toward other digestive and metabolic enzymes, namely trypsin, glycerol dehydrogenase, glycerol-phosphate dehydrogenase, glycerokinase, and lipase on the other hand (Polzonetti et al., 2004).
Triglycerides were measured according to the reactions of lipase, glycerokinase, 1-P-glycerol oxidase, and peroxidase enzymes using the Triglycerides Liquiform-Labtest kit[R] (Labtest).
Triglyceride was estimated by Glycerokinase Peroxidase- Peroxidase method.
