FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is a member of the paraoxonase family and lies in a cluster on chromosome 7 with the other two family members. The encoded protein is secreted into the bloodstream and associates with high-density lipoprotein (HDL). The protein also rapidly hydrolyzes lactones and can inhibit the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), a function that is believed to slow the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis. Alternatively spliced variants which encode different protein isoforms have been described; however, only one has been fully characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a null allele show prenatal and postnatal lethality. Homozygotes for a different null allele are viable but show altered lipid and bile acid metabolism, impaired mitochondrial respiration, and increased susceptibility to diet-induced atherosclerosis, gallstone formation, and obesity.
