Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is a crucial enzyme in lipid metabolism and transport, and its enzymatic deficiency causes metabolic disorders, such as hypertriglyceridemia. LPL has one predicted C-mannosylation site at Trp417. In this study, we demonstrated that LPL is C-mannosylated at Trp417 by mass spectrometry. Furthermore, by using wild-type and a C-mannosylation-defective mutant of LPL-overexpressing cell lines, we revealed that both secretion efficiency and enzymatic activity of C-mannosylation-defective mutant LPL were lower than those of wild-type. These data suggest the importance of C-mannosylation for LPL functions.
