Summaries for PLIN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PLIN1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene coats lipid storage droplets in adipocytes, thereby protecting them until they can be broken down by hormone-sensitive lipase. The encoded protein is the major cAMP-dependent protein kinase substrate in adipocytes and, when unphosphorylated, may play a role in the inhibition of lipolysis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants varying in the 5' UTR, but encoding the same protein, have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009]

GeneCards Summary for PLIN1 Gene

PLIN1 (Perilipin 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PLIN1 include Lipodystrophy, Familial Partial, Type 4 and Anterolateral Myocardial Infarction. Among its related pathways are Glucose / Energy Metabolism and Developmental Biology. GO annotations related to this gene include lipid binding. An important paralog of this gene is PLIN2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PLIN1 Gene

  • Modulator of adipocyte lipid metabolism. Coats lipid storage droplets to protect them from breakdown by hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL). Its absence may result in leanness. Plays a role in unilocular lipid droplet formation by activating CIDEC. Their interaction promotes lipid droplet enlargement and directional net neutral lipid transfer. May modulate lipolysis and triglyceride levels.
