  Domain Name: Pat_PNPLA3
Patatin-like phospholipase domain containing protein 3. PNPLA3 is a triacylglycerol lipase that mediates triacylglycerol hydrolysis in adipocytes and is an indicator of the nutritional state. PNPLA3 is also known as adiponutrin (ADPN) or iPLA2-epsilon. Human adiponutrins are bound to the cell membrane of adipocytes and show transacylase, TG hydrolase, and PLA2 activity. This family includes patatin-like proteins: ADPN (adiponutrin) from mammals, PNPLA3 (Patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing protein 3), and iPLA2-epsilon (Calcium-independent phospholipase A2) from Homo sapiens.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
