Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including enzyme regulator activity; phospholipase binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including lipid transport; positive regulation of lipase activity; and regulation of lipid metabolic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the low-density lipoprotein particle; spherical high-density lipoprotein particle; and triglyceride-rich plasma lipoprotein particle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial hyperlipidemia; familial lipoprotein lipase deficiency; and multiple sclerosis. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; intestine; liver; retina; and yolk sac endoderm. Orthologous to human APOC2 (apolipoprotein C2).
