  • Function
    Catalyzes the release of fatty acids from phospholipids. It has been implicated in normal phospholipid remodeling, nitric oxide-induced or vasopressin-induced arachidonic acid release and in leukotriene and prostaglandin production. May participate in fas mediated apoptosis and in regulating transmembrane ion flux in glucose-stimulated B-cells. Has a role in cardiolipin (CL) deacylation. Required for both speed and directionality of monocyte MCP1/CCL2-induced chemotaxis through regulation of F-actin polymerization at the pseudopods.
    Isoform ankyrin-iPLA2-1 and isoform ankyrin-iPLA2-2, which lack the catalytic domain, are probably involved in the negative regulation of iPLA2 activity.
  • Tissue specificity
    Four different transcripts were found to be expressed in a distinct tissue distribution.
  • Involvement in disease
    Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation 2B
    Neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation 2A
    Parkinson disease 14
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 7 ANK repeats.
    Contains 1 patatin domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm and Membrane. Recruited to the membrane-enriched pseudopod upon MCP1/CCL2 stimulation in monocytes.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links
  • Form
    The isoform LH-iPLA2 is located at the membrane. The isoform SH-iPLA2 is cytoplasmic.
