Lipoma HMGIC fusion partner-like protein (IPR019372)

Short name: Lipome_HGMIC_fus_partner-like

Family relationships

None.

Description

This is a group of proteins expressed from a series of genes referred to as Lipoma HGMIC fusion partner-like. The proteins carry four highly conserved transmembrane domains. In certain instances, as in LHFPL5, mutations cause deafness in humans [PMID: 16752389] or hypospadias [PMID: 16395596]. LHFPL1 is transcribed in six liver tumour cell lines [PMID: 15620218].
