FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a protein containing an alpha/beta hydrolase fold, which is a catalytic domain found in a wide range of enzymes. The encoded protein is an acylglycerol lipase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of endocannabinoid arachidonoylglycerol from the cell membrane. This leads to activation of the sperm calcium channel CatSper, which results in sperm activation. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants encoding the same protein.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a gene trapped allele are overtly but exhibit enhanced migratory ability of cultured smooth muscle cells, and significant intimal hyperplasia after cuff placement. [provided by MGI curators]
