  • FunctionPA2 catalyzes the calcium-dependent hydrolysis of the 2-acyl groups in 3-sn-phosphoglycerides. Shows an 11-fold preference for phosphatidylglycerol over phosphatidylcholine (PC). Preferential cleavage: 1-palmitoyl-2-linoleoyl-phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) > 1-palmitoyl-2-linoleoyl-PC > 1-palmitoyl-2-arachidonoyl-PC > 1-palmitoyl-2-arachidonoyl-PE. Plays a role in ciliogenesis.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in kidney, heart, liver, and skeletal muscle. Also present in placenta and peripheral blood leukocytes. Not detected in brain, colon, thymus, spleen and small intestine. In lung, expressed in bronchial epithelial cells and alveolar macrophages, but scarcely detected in alveolar epithelium, arterial walls and interstitial fibroblasts (at protein level). In joints of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, expressed in endothelial cells (at protein level). In normal heart, detected in some vessels. In myocardial tissues with acute infarction, expressed in vascular endothelial cells adjacent to cardiomyocytes and those in lesions with granulation. Expression in cardiomyocytes is scarce (at protein level). In uterus, breast and colon cancers, detected in tumor cells and neighboring microvascular endothelium, but not in normal glandular tissues (at protein level).
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the phospholipase A2 family.
  • Post-translational
    N-glycosylation does not affect the catalytic activity, but is required for proper secretion. A nonglycosylated form was observed in several cell types.
    In several cell types, the N- and C-termini are cleaved off.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted. Cell membrane. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome > centriole.

Thank you for your response.
Currently, we can't offer customer made peptide synthesis. It is very likely that we currently we do not have specific antibodies which could target the central S domain of the PLA2g3 protein (149-291 of the human PLA2...

Thank you for your enquiry.
These two antibodies are from two different sources, the manufacturing and the characterization processes are different thus the tested applications are not the same as you can see of the product datasheets.
