Domain

Hormone-sensitive lipase, N-terminal (IPR010468)

Short name: HSL_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in several mammalian hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) proteins. Hormone-sensitive lipase, a key enzyme in fatty acid mobilisation, overall energy homeostasis, and possibly steroidogenesis, is acutely controlled via reversible phosphorylation by catecholamines and insulin [PMID: 3420405].
