  • Function
    Plays important roles in controlling the metabolism of fatty acids at differents levels. Acts as a magnesium-dependent phosphatidate phosphatase enzyme which catalyzes the conversion of phosphatidic acid to diacylglycerol during triglyceride, phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis in the reticulum endoplasmic membrane. Acts also as a nuclear transcriptional coactivator for PPARGC1A to modulate lipid metabolism.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in liver, lung, kidney, placenta, spleen, thymus, lymph node, prostate, testes, small intestine, and colon.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in LPIN2 are the cause of Majeed syndrome (MAJEEDS) [MIM:609628]. An autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by chronic recurrent multifocal osteomyelitis that is of early onset with a lifelong course, congenital dyserythropoietic anemia that presents as hypochromic, microcytic anemia during the first year of life and ranges from mild to transfusion-dependent, and transient inflammatory dermatosis, often manifesting as Sweet syndrome (neutrophilic skin infiltration).
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the lipin family.
  • Domain
    Contains 1 Asp-Xaa-Asp-Xaa-Thr (DXDXT) motif, a catalytic motif known to be essential for phosphatidate phosphatase activity.
    Contains one Leu-Xaa-Xaa-Ile-Leu (LXXIL) motif, a motif known to be a transcriptional binding motif.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Cytoplasm > cytosol. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Translocates to endoplasmic reticulum membrane with increasing levels of oleate.
