Lipolytic enzymes which improve the properties of dough or baked products generally have a high activity towards lipids which are capable of forming a hexagonal phase, and a screening method was developed on this basis. The improved properties may include a larger loaf volume, an improved shape factor, an improved crumb structure, reduced dough stickiness, improved dough stability and/or improved tolerance towards extended proofing. The advantageous lipid-degrading enzymes have higher activity towards MGDG and/or unsaturated phosphatidyl ethanolamines (APE, PE) than towards DGDG, PC, PS, PI, PG, saturated phosphatidyl ethanolamines, ALPE and/or triglicerides.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
