Use of oil substrates has found very limited application in the enzyme work on cereal lipases. Sullivan and Howel used 0.5 grn. of ground wheat for 1 gm. of oil, 10 ml of water and 10 ml of buffer in the reaction mixture which gave low titration figures as compared to the performance of the watersoluble substrate like triacetin. Singer, Thomas and Hofstee2 ; Miller, Byron and Kummerow3; and Houston, Roberts and Kester4 also used water-soluble substrates. On the other hand, Widhe and Onselius5 studied lipolysis in doughs made from various cereal flours including oats (20 gm. flour +10 gm. bakers margerine+10 gm. sucrose +2 gm. water) and likewise Hutchinson, Martin and Moran's, in order to simulate conditions in dough making, used a mixture of extracted oat meal flour and olive oil with 36% moisture, in their studies on the lipolytic activity in oats. No systematic attempts, has, however, been made to study the influence of moisture content in the oil substrate system vis-a-vis the activity of oat lipases. The present investigation deals with this aspect of lipase activity and the application of the findings to other cereal flours is being investigated.
