  • FunctionSelectively hydrolyzes arachidonyl phospholipids in the sn-2 position releasing arachidonic acid. Together with its lysophospholipid activity, it is implicated in the initiation of the inflammatory response.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in various tissues such as macrophages, platelets, neutrophils, fibroblasts and lung endothelium.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 C2 domain.
    Contains 1 PLA2c domain.
  • DomainThe N-terminal C2 domain associates with lipid membranes upon calcium binding. It modulates enzyme activity by presenting the active site to its substrate in response to elevations of cytosolic Ca(2+).
  • Post-translational
    Activated by phosphorylation at both Ser-505 and Ser-727.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cytoplasmic vesicle. Translocates to membrane vesicles in a calcium-dependent fashion.
