The official name of this gene is “acid phosphatase 6, lysophosphatidic.”
ACP6 is the gene's official symbol. The ACP6 gene is also known by other names, listed below.
Hydrolyzes lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) containing a medium length fatty acid chain to the corresponding monoacylglycerol. Has highest activity with lysophosphatidic acid containing myristate (C14:0), monounsaturated oleate (C18:1) or palmitate (C16:0), and lower activity with C18:0 and C6:0 lysophosphatidic acid.
