GeneCards Summary for ENPP6 Gene
ENPP6 (Ectonucleotide Pyrophosphatase/Phosphodiesterase 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Glycerophospholipid biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include phosphoric diester hydrolase activity and glycerophosphocholine cholinephosphodiesterase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ENPP3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ENPP6 Gene
Choline-specific glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase. The preferred substrate may be lysosphingomyelin (By similarity). Hydrolyzes lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) to form monoacylglycerol and phosphorylcholine but not lysophosphatidic acid, showing it has a lysophospholipase C activity. Has a preference for LPC with short (12:0 and 14:0) or polyunsaturated (18:2 and 20:4) fatty acids. Also hydrolyzes glycerophosphorylcholine and sphingosylphosphorylcholine efficiently. Hydrolyzes the classical substrate for phospholipase C, p-nitrophenyl phosphorylcholine in vitro, while it does not hydrolyze the classical nucleotide phosphodiesterase substrate, p-nitrophenyl thymidine 5-monophosphate. Does not hydrolyze diacyl phospholipids such as phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylserine, phosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidic acid.
