GO annotations related to this gene include phospholipase A2 activity and lysophospholipase activity. An important paralog of this gene is JMJD7-PLA2G4B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PLA2G4F Gene
Calcium-dependent phospholipase A2 that selectively hydrolyzes glycerophospholipids in the sn-2 position. Has higher enzyme activity for phosphatidylethanolamine than phosphatidylcholine (By similarity).
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.
