Lipin 1 represses NFATc4 transcriptional activity in adipocytes to inhibit secretion of inflammatory factors.


Lipin 1 is a bifunctional protein that regulates gene transcription and, as a Mg(2+)-dependent phosphatidic acid phosphatase (PAP), is a key enzyme in the biosynthesis of phospholipids and triacylglycerol. We describe here the functional interaction between lipin 1 and the nuclear factor of activated T cells c4 (NFATc4). Lipin 1 represses NFATc4… (More)
