*Please inquire the availability for this product. Lipstatin is a potent irreversible inhibitor of pancreatic lipase, produced by Streptomyces toxytricini and first reported in 1987. In vivo, lipstatin acts to block the absorption of triglycerides while allowing fatty acid absorption. The tetrahydro analogue of lipstatin, orlistat, although less potent, was developed for the treatment of obesity.
