Mid1-interacting protein 1 (MID1IP1, aka MIG12, SPOT14R, S14R) plays a role in the regulation of lipogenesis in the liver. It is rapidly upregulated by processes that induce lipogenesis (enhanced glucose metabolism, thyroid hormone administration) (Tsatsos et al. 2008). MID1IP1 forms a heterodimer with thyroid hormone-inducible hepatic protein (THRSP, aka SPOT14, S14), proposed to play the same role in lipogenesis as MID1IP1 (Aipoalani et al. 2010). This complex can polymerise acetyl-CoA carboxylases 1 and 2 (ACACA and B), the first committed enzymes in fatty acid (FA) synthesis. Polymerisation enhances ACACA and ACACB enzyme activities (Kim et al. 2010, Park et al. 2013).
