NomenclatureSymbol: LIPE
NomenclatureName: lipase, hormone-sensitive
NomenclatureStatus: Official
TaxID: 9606
GeneWeight: 22008
Summary: The protein encoded by this gene has a long and a short form, generated by use of alternative translational start codons. The long form is expressed in steroidogenic tissues such as testis, where it converts cholesteryl esters to free cholesterol for steroid hormone production. The short form is expressed in adipose tissue, among others, where it hydrolyzes stored triglycerides to free fatty acids. [provided by RefSeq]
