Lysosomal lipase is a form of lipase which functions intracellularly, in the lysosomes.

Clinical significance[edit]

A deficiency associated with lysosomal acid lipase deficiency, Wolman disease, and cholesteryl ester storage disease.

Chlorpromazine is an inhibitor of lysosomal lipase.[1]

A genome wide survey suggests that lysosomal lipase A (located at chromosome 10q23.31) is associated with coronary artery disease in humans.[2]
