Summaries for CEL Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CEL Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a glycoprotein secreted from the pancreas into the digestive tract and from the lactating mammary gland into human milk. The physiological role of this protein is in cholesterol and lipid-soluble vitamin ester hydrolysis and absorption. This encoded protein promotes large chylomicron production in the intestine. Also its presence in plasma suggests its interactions with cholesterol and oxidized lipoproteins to modulate the progression of atherosclerosis. In pancreatic tumoral cells, this encoded protein is thought to be sequestrated within the Golgi compartment and is probably not secreted. This gene contains a variable number of tandem repeat (VNTR) polymorphism in the coding region that may influence the function of the encoded protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CEL Gene

CEL (Carboxyl Ester Lipase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CEL include Maturity-Onset Diabetes Of The Young, Type 8, With Exocrine Dysfunction and Maturity-Onset Diabetes Of The Young. Among its related pathways are Glycerolipid metabolism and Lipoprotein metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and carboxylic ester hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NLGN3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEL Gene

  • Catalyzes fat and vitamin absorption. Acts in concert with pancreatic lipase and colipase for the complete digestion of dietary triglycerides.

Tocris Summary for CEL 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).

  • Maturity-onset diabetes of the young 8 with exocrine dysfunction (MODY8) [MIM:609812]: A form of diabetes that is characterized by an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance, onset in childhood or early adulthood (usually before 25 years of age), a primary defect in insulin secretion and frequent insulin-independence at the beginning of the disease. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16369531}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. The disease can be caused by frameshift deletions in the variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR)-containing exon 11 of the CEL gene (PubMed:16369531). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16369531}.
