The LMF1 gene at 16p13.3 codes for the 567 amino acid lipase maturation factor 1. This factor is required for maturation and transport of active lipoprotein lipase. Defects are a cause of a lipoprotein lipase deficiency called combined lipase deficiency(CLD) as hepatic triglyceride lipase function is also impaired.
