Gene information for PNPLA3 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID80339
Official gene symbolPNPLA3
Full namepatatin-like phospholipase domain containing 3
Gene summaryThe protein encoded by this gene is a triacylglycerol lipase that mediates triacylglycerol hydrolysis in adipocytes. The encoded protein, which appears to be membrane bound, may be involved in the balance of energy usage/storage in adipocytes. [provided by RefSeq]
