Acyl-protein thioesterase 1 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the LYPLA1 gene.

Lysophospholipases are enzymes that act on biological membranes to regulate the multifunctional lysophospholipids. The protein encoded by this gene hydrolyzes lysophosphatidylcholine in the Monomeric and micellar forms. The use of alternative sites polyadenylation has been found for this gene. There are alternative spliced variants of transcripts described for this gene, but throughout the length nature is not known.
