Family

Lipase maturation factor (IPR009613)

Short name: LMF

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family of transmembrane proteins includes the lipase maturation factors LMF1 and LMF2. Lipoprotein lipase and hepatic lipase require LMF1 to fold into their active states [PMID: 17994020, PMID: 19783858]. The precise role of LMF1 in lipase folding has yet to be determined [PMID: 20543905].
