Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Enables lysophospholipase activity. Involved in phosphatidylcholine metabolic process. Acts upstream of or within angiogenesis and animal organ morphogenesis. Located in membrane. Predicted to be active in endoplasmic reticulum. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; cranial nerve; epithelium; extraembryonic component; and genitourinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Boucher-Neuhauser syndrome; Laurence-Moon syndrome; Oliver-McFarlane syndrome; and hereditary spastic paraplegia 39.
