  • FunctionReceptor for secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2). Acts as a receptor for phosholipase sPLA2-IB/PLA2G1B but not sPLA2-IIA/PLA2G2A. Also able to bind to snake PA2-like toxins. Although its precise function remains unclear, binding of sPLA2 to its receptor participates in both positive and negative regulation of sPLA2 functions as well as clearance of sPLA2. Binding of sPLA2-IB/PLA2G1B induces various effects depending on the cell type, such as activation of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascade to induce cell proliferation, the production of lipid mediators, selective release of arachidonic acid in bone marrow-derived mast cells. In neutrophils, binding of sPLA2-IB/PLA2G1B can activate p38 MAPK to stimulate elastase release and cell adhesion. May be involved in responses in proinflammatory cytokine productions during endotoxic shock. Also has endocytic properties and rapidly internalizes sPLA2 ligands, which is particularly important for the clearance of extracellular sPLA2s to protect their potent enzymatic activities. The soluble secretory phospholipase A2 receptor form is circulating and acts as a negative regulator of sPLA2 functions by blocking the biological functions of sPLA2-IB/PLA2G1B.
  • Tissue specificityPresent in lung macrophage (at protein level). Highly expressed in kidney. Also expressed in pancreas, amnion, choriodecidua and placenta. Isoform 2 is expressed at much lower level.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 8 C-type lectin domains.
    Contains 1 fibronectin type-II domain.
    Contains 1 ricin B-type lectin domain.
  • DomainC-type lectin domains 3-5 mediate the interaction with phospholipase PLA2G1B.
    The endocytosis signal probably mediates endocytosis via clathrin-coated pits.
  • Post-translational
    The secretory phospholipase A2 receptor form may be produced by the action of metalloproteinases. It contains all extracellular domains and only lacks transmembrane and cytosolic regions. It is however unclear whether this form is produced by proteolytic cleavage as suggested by some experiments, or by alternative splicing, as in the case of isoform 2 that shares all characteristics of secretory phospholipase A2 receptor form.

Thank you for contacting us. Kidney would be a good control for this product. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Thank you for contacting us and your interest in our products.

Unfortunately, we do not currently have any antibodies directed against PLA2R which have shown to detect the protein in mouse samples. I have checked the immunogen used to raise t...

Thank you for your enquiry.

With what specific application does your customer wish to use the antibody? And what species of serum are they working with?

Thanks for the additional information.

Thank you for contacting us. I can confirm that the immunogen sequences for these two antibodies are different. The immunogen for ab99466 is from an internal domain (amino acid 946 - 957), whereas the immunogen for ab80054 is from a C terminal doma...
