Summaries for LIPC Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LIPC Gene

  • LIPC encodes hepatic triglyceride lipase, which is expressed in liver. LIPC has the dual functions of triglyceride hydrolase and ligand/bridging factor for receptor-mediated lipoprotein uptake. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for LIPC Gene

LIPC (Lipase, Hepatic) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LIPC include hepatic lipase deficiency and hyperlipidemia due to hepatic triglyceride lipase deficiency. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include heparin binding and low-density lipoprotein particle binding. An important paralog of this gene is LPL.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LIPC Gene

  • Hepatic lipase has the capacity to catalyze hydrolysis of phospholipids, mono-, di-, and triglycerides, and acyl-CoA thioesters. It is an important enzyme in HDL metabolism. Hepatic lipase binds heparin
