  • Function
    Involved primarily in ATP hydrolysis at the plasma membrane. Plays a role in regulating pyrophosphate levels, and functions in bone mineralization and soft tissue calcification. In vitro, has a broad specificity, hydrolyzing other nucleoside 5' triphosphates such as GTP, CTP, TTP and UTP to their corresponding monophosphates with release of pyrophosphate and diadenosine polyphosphates, and also 3',5'-cAMP to AMP. May also be involved in the regulation of the availability of nucleotide sugars in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi, and the regulation of purinergic signaling. Appears to modulate insulin sensitivity.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in plasma cells and also in a number of non-lymphoid tissues, including the distal convoluted tubule of the kidney, chondrocytes and epididymis.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ENPP1 are a cause of increased susceptibility for ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of the spine (OPLL) [MIM:602475]. OPLL is a common form of human myelopathy with a prevalence of as much as 4% in a variety of ethnic groups.
    Defects in ENPP1 are the cause of arterial calcification of infancy, generalized, type 1 (GACI1) [MIM:208000]. A severe autosomal recessive disorder characterized by calcification of the internal elastic lamina of muscular arteries and stenosis due to myointimal proliferation. The disorder is often fatal within the first 6 months of life because of myocardial ischemia resulting in refractory heart failure.
    Defects in ENPP1 are associated with obesity, glucose intolerance, and type II diabetes non-insulin dependent (NIDDM) [MIM:125853].
    Defects in ENPP1 are the cause of rickets hypophosphatemic autosomal recessive type 2 (ARHR2) [MIM:613312]. ARHR2 is a hereditary form of hypophosphatemic rickets, a disorder of proximal renal tubule function that causes phosphate loss, hypophosphatemia and skeletal deformities, including rickets and osteomalacia unresponsive to vitamin D. Symptoms are bone pain, fractures and growth abnormalities.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the nucleotide pyrophosphatase/phosphodiesterase family.
    Contains 2 SMB (somatomedin-B) domains.
  • Domain
    The di-leucine motif is required for basolateral targeting in epithelial cells, and for targeting to matrix vesicles derived from mineralizing cells.
  • Post-translational
    Autophosphorylated as part of the catalytic cycle of phosphodiesterase/pyrophosphatase activity.
    It has been suggested that the active SMB domain may be permitted considerable disulfide bond heterogeneity or variability, thus two alternate disulfide patterns based on 3D structures are described with 1 disulfide bond conserved in both.
  • Cellular localization
    Membrane. Basolateral cell membrane. Targeted to the basolateral membrane in polarized epithelial cells and in hepatocytes, and to matrix vesicles in osteoblasts. In bile duct cells and cancer cells, located to the apical cytoplasmic side.
