This gene encodes a transmembrane protein that belongs to the Tmemb_18A family. A similar protein in yeast is a component of an endoplasmic reticulum-associated protein phosphatase complex and is thought to play a role in the synthesis of triacylglycerol. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
GeneCards Summary for CNEP1R1 Gene
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CNEP1R1 Gene
Forms with the serine/threonine protein phosphatase CTDNEP1 an active complex which dephosphorylates and may activate LPIN1 and LPIN2. LPIN1 and LPIN2 are phosphatidate phosphatases that catalyze the conversion of phosphatidic acid to diacylglycerol and control the metabolism of fatty acids at differents levels. May indirectly modulate the lipid composition of nuclear and/or endoplasmic reticulum membranes and be required for proper nuclear membrane morphology and/or dynamics. May also indirectly regulate the production of lipid droplets and triacylglycerol.
