ApoC-III regulates triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and is a known inhibitor of lipoprotein lipase activity and LPL-mediated lipolysis of TRLs.
Normally, CGI58 protein found on the surface of cytoplasmic lipid droplets activates lipase and leads to lipolysis. Mutations in the ABHD5/CGI58 gene prevent lipolysis, consequently leading to lipid accumulation in leucocytes, fibroblasts, liver, and muscle cells.
