lipoprotein lipase

Gene Summary

Enables lipoprotein lipase activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cytokine production; positive regulation of macrophage derived foam cell differentiation; and triglyceride catabolic process. Acts upstream of or within response to bacterium. Located in cell surface and extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; limb; lung; and sensory organ. Used to study familial lipoprotein lipase deficiency. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; artery disease (multiple); familial hyperlipidemia (multiple); muscular disease; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human LPL (lipoprotein lipase). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
