Patatin-like phospholipase domain-containing protein 2

The PNPLA2 gene encodes an enzyme that is involved in metabolism of triglycerides in adipose tissues. Mutations cause autosomal recessive neutral lipid storage disease with myopathy. Also some genetic variations are associated with familial combined hyperlipidemia.
