Screening for pancreatic lipase natural modulators by capillary electrophoresis hyphenated to spectrophotometric and conductometric dual detection

Abstract : The search for novel pancreatic lipase (PL) inhibitors has gained increasing attention in recent years. For the first time, a dual detection capillary electrophoresis (CE)-based homogeneous lipase assay was developed employing both the offline and online reaction modes. The hydrolysis of 4-nitrophenyl butyrate (4-NPB) catalyzed by PL into 4-nitrophenol and butyrate was monitored by spectrophotometric and conductimetric detection, respectively. The assays presented several advantages such as economy in consumption (few tens of nanoliters for online assays to few tens of microliters for offline assays), no modification of lipase, rapidity (<10 min) and versatility. Tris/MOPS (10 mM, pH 6.6) was used as the background electrolyte and the incubation buffer for enzymatic reactions. We confirmed that in the conditions of the study (small substrate 4-NPB, 37 °C, pH 6.6), the PL was active even in the absence of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) vesicles, generally used to mimic the lipid–water interface. This was confirmed by the maximum velocity (Vmax) and the Michaelis–Menten constant (Km) values that were the same order of magnitude in the absence and presence of DPPC. The developed method was used to screen crude aqueous plant extracts and purified compounds. We were able to identify the promising PL inhibition of hawthorn leaf herbal infusions at 1 mg mL−1 (37%) and PL activation by fresh and dry hawthorn flowers (∼24%). Additionally, two triterpenoids purified from extracts of oakwood were identified for the first time as potent PL inhibitors demonstrating 51 and 58% inhibition at 1 mg mL−1, respectively.
