This text provides a brief overview of the principles of enzymatic lipid conversion and some recent advances in the enzymatic conversion of glycerophospholipids and galactolipids. Lipases and phospholipases are used to exchange fatty acids or the polar group in the lipids. The reactions can be carried out either as hydrolysis-esterification sequences or as one-step transferase reactions. The scope and limitations of the different methods are discussed.
