Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase activity and carboxylic ester hydrolase activity. Involved in negative regulation of sequestering of triglyceride; positive regulation of lipoprotein lipase activity; and positive regulation of triglyceride catabolic process. Localizes to the cytosol and lipid droplet. Used to study neutral lipid storage disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis 1 and neutral lipid storage disease. Is expressed in central nervous system; dorsal root ganglion; and retina. Orthologous to human ABHD5 (abhydrolase domain containing 5).
