LPL plays a pivotal role in lipids and the metabolism of lipoprotein. Major functions of LPL include the hydrolysis of TG-rich lipoproteins and release of non-esterified fatty acid (NEFA), which are taken up and used for metabolic energy in peripheral tissue such as muscle, or are re-esterified into TG and stored in adipose tissue. The balance between these competing effects could determine whether increased LPL activity will lead to a reduced rate of weight gain or to increased adiposity through increased rates of adipose tissue storage of TG. An imbalance of LPL activity may alter the partitions of plasma TG between muscle and adipose tissue, and thus influence insulin resistance and obesity
