Summaries for LIPF Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for LIPF Gene

  • This gene encodes gastric lipase, an enzyme involved in the digestion of dietary triglycerides in the gastrointestinal tract, and responsible for 30% of fat digestion processes occurring in human. It is secreted by gastric chief cells in the fundic mucosa of the stomach, and it hydrolyzes the ester bonds of triglycerides under acidic pH conditions. The gene is a member of a conserved gene family of lipases that play distinct roles in neutral lipid metabolism. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for LIPF Gene

LIPF (Lipase F, Gastric Type) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LIPF include Osteopetrosis, Autosomal Recessive 5 and Wolman Disease. Among its related pathways are triacylglycerol biosynthesis and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include lipid binding and malate dehydrogenase activity. An important paralog of this gene is LIPA.

Tocris Summary for LIPF Gene

  • Lipases are esterase enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of ester bonds within hydrophobic lipids. The diverse class of lipase enzymes includes diacylglycerol lipase (DAGL) and lipoprotein lipase (LPL) and endothelial lipase (LIPG).
