Summaries for PLA2G2D Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PLA2G2D Gene

  • This gene encodes a secreted member of the phospholipase A2 family, and is found in a cluster of related family members on chromosome 1. Phospholipase A2 family members hydrolyze the sn-2 fatty acid ester bond of glycerophospholipids to produce lysophospholipids and free fatty acid. This gene may be involved in inflammation and immune response, and in weight loss associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012]

GeneCards Summary for PLA2G2D Gene

PLA2G2D (Phospholipase A2 Group IID) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PLA2G2D include Bladder Diverticulum and Splenic Infarction. Among its related pathways are Linoleic acid metabolism and Pancreatic secretion. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and phospholipase A2 activity. An important paralog of this gene is PLA2G2C.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PLA2G2D Gene

  • PA2 catalyzes the calcium-dependent hydrolysis of the 2-acyl groups in 3-sn-phosphoglycerides. L-alpha-1-palmitoyl-2-linoleoyl phosphatidylethanolamine is more efficiently hydrolyzed than the other phospholipids examined.

Tocris Summary for PLA2G2D Gene

  • Phospholipases are a group of enzymes that hydrolyze phospholipids into fatty acids and other lipophilic molecules. There are four major classes; phospholipase A, phospholipase B, phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C and phospholipase D.
