  • Function
    Modulates the action of platelet-activating factor (PAF) by hydrolyzing the sn-2 ester bond to yield the biologically inactive lyso-PAF. Has a specificity for substrates with a short residue at the sn-2 position. It is inactive against long-chain phospholipids.
  • Tissue specificity
    Plasma.
  • Involvement in disease
    Platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase deficiency
    Asthma
    Atopic hypersensitivity
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Lipase family.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted, extracellular space.
  • Information by UniProt
