Summaries for PLD2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PLD2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the hydrolysis of phosphatidylcholine to phosphatidic acid and choline. The activity of the encoded enzyme is enhanced by phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate and ADP-ribosylation factor-1. This protein localizes to the peripheral membrane and may be involved in cytoskeletal organization, cell cycle control, transcriptional regulation, and/or regulated secretion. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011]

GeneCards Summary for PLD2 Gene

PLD2 (Phospholipase D2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PLD2 include colorectal cancer. Among its related pathways are Ras signaling pathway and Development FGFR signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include phosphatidylinositol binding and N-acylphosphatidylethanolamine-specific phospholipase D activity. An important paralog of this gene is PLD1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PLD2 Gene

  • May have a role in signal-induced cytoskeletal regulation and/or endocytosis.

Tocris Summary for PLD2 Gene

  • Phospholipases are a group of enzymes that hydrolyze phospholipids into fatty acids and other lipophilic molecules. PLC is subdivided into beta, gamma, delta, epsilon, zeta and eta subtypes, which catalyze the hydrolysis of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) to inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) and 1,2-diacylglycerol (DAG). IP3 and DAG both have important second messenger functions. PLC-beta is primarily activated by Gq/11 proteins and PLC-gamma is activated by phosphorylation in response to a variety of growth factor and immune system signals. Phospholipases are ubiquitously expressed and have diverse biological functions including roles in inflammation, cell growth, signaling and death and maintenance of membrane phospholipids.
