Gene: Pla2g4b (phospholipase A2 group IVB) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pla2g4b
Name: phospholipase A2 group IVB
Description: Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity; calcium-dependent phospholipid binding activity; and phospholipase activity. Predicted to be involved in glycerophospholipid catabolic process. Predicted to localize to cytosol. Orthologous to several human genes including JMJD7-PLA2G4B (JMJD7-PLA2G4B readthrough); PARTICIPATES IN acetylsalicylic acid pharmacodynamics pathway; alpha-linoleic acid metabolic pathway; antipyrine drug pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; amphetamine; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: INFERRED
Also known as: cytosolic phospholipase A2 beta; LOC311341; phospholipase A2, group IVB; phospholipase A2, group IVB (cytosolic)
