Comments

The "founder" member of this family was known previously as LHFP, 'lipoma HMGIC fusion partner'. In order to retain the numbering of the paralogous family members, LHFPL1, LHFPL2, LHFPL3, LHFPL4 and LHFPL5, the family root symbol was extended to LHFPL# and the common name construction of 'LHFPL tetraspan subfamily #' was adopted. LHFP was renamed to LHFPL6.
