Lipoma-preferred partner (LPP)

May play a structural role at sites of cell adhesion in maintaining cell shape and motility. In addition to these structural functions, it might 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 on which distinct protein complexes are assembled in the cytoplasm and in the nucleus.
