The protein encoded by this gene coats lipid storage droplets in adipocytes thereby protecting them until they can be broken down by hormone-sensitive lipase. The encoded protein is the major cAMP-dependent protein kinase substrate in adipocytes and when unphosphorylated may play a role in the inhibition of lipolysis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants varying in the 5' UTR but encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq Feb 2009]
