perilipin 1 Modulator of adipocyte lipid metabolism. Coats lipid storage droplets to protect them from breakdown by hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL). Its absence may result in leanness. Plays a role in unilocular lipid droplet formation by activating CIDEC. Their interaction promotes lipid droplet enlargement and directional net neutral lipid transfer. May modulate lipolysis and triglyceride levels. Belongs to the perilipin family. Detected in adipocytes from white adipose tissue (at protein level) (PubMed:27832861). Detected in visceral adipose tissue and mammary gland (PubMed:9521880). Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
