ABHD5 Information: ABHD5 Protein, ABHD5 Antibody and ABHD5 Gene

ABHD5 Gene family

ABHD5 Protein

ABHD5 protein function

Lysophosphatidic acid acyltransferase which functions in phosphatidic acid biosynthesis (PubMed:18606822). May regulate the cellular storage of triacylglycerol through activation of the phospholipase PNPLA2 (PubMed:16679289). Involved in keratinocyte differentiation (PubMed:18832586). Regulates lipid droplet fusion (By similarity).

ABHD5 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Widely expressed in various tissues, including lymphocytes, liver, skeletal muscle and brain. Expressed by upper epidermal layers and dermal fibroblasts in skin, hepatocytes and neurons (at protein level).


Up-regulated upon keratinocyte differentiation (at protein level).
