PNPLA4 patatin like phospholipase domain containing 4

Gene ID: 8228, updated on 17-Jun-2019
Also known as: GS2; DXS1283E; iPLA2eta


This gene encodes a member of the patatin-like family of phospholipases. The encoded enzyme has both triacylglycerol lipase and transacylase activities and may be involved in adipocyte triglyceride homeostasis. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome Y. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]
