From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of a subfamily of LIM domain proteins that are characterized by an N-terminal proline-rich region and three C-terminal LIM domains. The encoded protein localizes to the cell periphery in focal adhesions and may be involved in cell-cell adhesion and cell motility. This protein also shuttles through the nucleus and may function as a transcriptional co-activator. This gene is located at the junction of certain disease-related chromosomal translocations, which result in the expression of chimeric proteins that may promote tumor growth. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]
May play a structural role at sites of cell adhesion in maintaining cell shape and motility. In addition to these structural functions, it may also be implicated in signaling events and activation of gene transcription. May be involved in signal transduction from cell adhesion sites to the nucleus allowing successful integration of signals arising from soluble factors and cell-cell adhesion sites. Also suggested to serve as a scaffold protein upon which distinct protein complexes are assembled in the cytoplasm and in the nucleus.
A chromosomal aberration involving LPP is associated with parosteal lipomas. Translocation t(3;12)(q28;q14) with HMGA2 is also shown in one parosteal lipoma.
A chromosomal aberration involving LPP is associated with acute monoblastic leukemia. Translocation t(3;11)(q28;q23) with KMT2A/MLL1 is associated with acute monoblastic leukemia.
A chromosomal aberration involving LPP is associated with a subclass of benign mesenchymal tumors known as lipomas. Translocation t(3;12)(q27-q28;q13-q15) with HMGA2 is shown in lipomas.
A chromosomal aberration involving LPP is associated with pulmonary chondroid hamartomas. Translocation t(3;12)(q27-q28;q14-q15) with HMGA2 is detected in pulmonary chondroid hamartomas.
