  • Target

    • Function

      The primary function of this lipase is the hydrolysis of triglycerides of circulating chylomicrons and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL). Binding to heparin sulfate proteogylcans at the cell surface is vital to the function. The apolipoprotein, APOC2, acts as a coactivator of LPL activity in the presence of lipids on the luminal surface of vascular endothelium.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in LPL are the cause of lipoprotein lipase deficiency (LPL deficiency) [MIM:238600]; also known as familial chylomicronemia or hyperlipoproteinemia type I. LPL deficiency chylomicronemia is a recessive disorder usually manifesting in childhood. On a normal diet, patients often present with abdominal pain, hepatosplenomegaly, lipemia retinalis, eruptive xanthomata, and massive hypertriglyceridemia, sometimes complicated with acute pancreatitis.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Lipase family.
      Contains 1 PLAT domain.
    • Post-translational

      Tyrosine nitration after lipopolysaccharide (LPS) challenge down-regulates the lipase activity.
    • Cellular localization

      Cell membrane. Secreted. Locates to the plasma membrane of microvilli of hepatocytes with triacyl-glycerol-rich lipoproteins (TRL). Some of the bound LPL is then internalized and located inside non-coated endocytic vesicles.
