DESCRIPTION
Also known as LIPS_BOVIN, LIPE. In adipose tissue and heart, it primarily hydrolyzes stored triglycerides to free fatty acids, while in steroidogenic tissues, it principally converts cholesteryl esters to free cholesterol for steroid hormone production. Interacts with CAVIN1 in the adipocyte cytoplasm. Interacts with PLIN5.
