Apolipoprotein(a) is the distinguishing protein moiety of lipoprotein(a), of which elevated plasma levels are correlated with an increased risk of atherosclerosis. This gene is similar to the lipoprotein, Lp(a) gene, but all transcripts produced by this gene contain a truncated open reading frame and are candidates for nonsense-mediated decay. Consequently, this gene is considered to be a pseudogene. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
LPAL2 has several biochemical functions, for example, molecular_function, protein binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by LPAL2 itself. We selected most functions LPAL2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with LPAL2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
