LIPH lipase, member H

Also known as: AH; LAH2; ARWH2; HYPT7; LPDLR; PLA1B; mPA-PLA1

Summary

This gene encodes a membrane-bound member of the mammalian triglyceride lipase family. It catalyzes the production of 2-acyl lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), which is a lipid mediator with diverse biological properties that include platelet aggregation, smooth muscle contraction, and stimulation of cell proliferation and motility.
