Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Enables phospholipase activity. Acts upstream of or within regulation of lipoprotein metabolic process. Predicted to be located in Golgi apparatus; cell surface; and early endosome. Predicted to be active in extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cardiovascular system disease; cerebral infarction; coronary artery disease; and myocardial infarction. Orthologous to human LIPG (lipase G, endothelial type).
