Adipophilin (ADFP, adipocyte differentiation-related protein) belongs to the perilipin family associated with lipid globule surface membranes and intracellular lipid storage droplets in various normal cells. It is a major constituent of the globule surface and involved in the development and maintenance of adipose tissue. It is present in the cytoplasm of a wide range of cultured cell lines and tissues, including fibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells, lactating mammary glands, the adrenal cortex, Sertoli & Leydig cells, and hepatocytes in alcoholic liver cirrhosis. Anti-Adipophilin is considered a useful marker of cytoplasmic lipids, sebocytes, and lipid accumulation, and can be used to identify sebaceous lesions and carcinomas.
