LNS2/PITP (IPR031315)

Short name: LNS2/PITP

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


This domain is found in lipins, lipin homologues from Saccharomyces cerevisiae (Smp2, PAH1) [PMID: 16467296] and Schizosaccharomyces pombe (Ned1) [PMID: 12376568], and in class II phosphatidylinositol transfer proteins (PITP) [PMID: 23916246]. Lipin proteins are phosphatidate phosphatases which catalyse the dephosphorylation of phosphatidic acid to diacylglycerol, the penultimate step in triacylglycerol synthesis [PMID: 23603613].
