High impact information on LIPH
- LIPH is localized on human chromosome 3q27-q28 .
- Like the other members of this gene family, LIPH may be involved in lipid and energy metabolism .
- We report here the molecular cloning of a novel member of the triglyceride lipase family, a 2.4-kb cDNA encoding human lipase H (LIPH) and the mouse ortholog (Liph) .
Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of LIPH
- Northern blot analysis revealed specific expression of LIPH mRNA in intestine, lung, and pancreas .
- Lipase H, a new member of the triglyceride lipase family synthesized by the intestine. Jin, W., Broedl, U.C., Monajemi, H., Glick, J.M., Rader, D.J. Genomics (2002) [Pubmed]
