Lipase, hormone-sensitive

hormone-sensitive lipase, hormone-sensitive lipase,, LIPE
The protein encoded by this gene has a long and a short form, generated by use of alternative translational start codons. The long form is expressed in steroidogenic tissues such as testis, where it converts cholesteryl esters to free cholesterol for steroid hormone production. The short form is expressed in adipose tissue, among others, where it hydrolyzes stored triglycerides to free fatty acids. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Genetic variation of hormone sensitive lipase and male infertility.
Tavilani et al., Hamadān, Iran. In Syst Biol Reprod Med, 2011
suggests that genetic variation of HSL may be a risk factor for male infertility
Adipose triglyceride lipase contributes to cancer-associated cachexia.
Hoefler et al., Graz, Austria. In Science, 2011
total lipase, ATGL and HSL activities were higher in visceral white adipose tissue of cancer patients compared with individuals without cancer and higher in cancer patients with cachexia compared with cancer patients without cachexia
[Effects of the LIPE C-60G polymorphism on changes of plasma lipids and glucose induced by a high-carbohydrate diet in healthy youth].
Fang et al., Chengdu, China. In Sichuan Da Xue Xue Bao Yi Xue Ban, 2011
LIPE C-60G variation can inhibit the decrease of LDL-C and the increases of HDL-C and apo A-I in young healthy males, and can inhibit the decrease of LDL-C and the increase of insulin in young healthy females induced by a high-carbohydrate diet.
