Gene: Pla2g4a (phospholipase A2 group IVA) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pla2g4a
Name: phospholipase A2 group IVA
RGD ID: 67366
Description: Exhibits calcium-dependent phospholipase A2 activity and histone acetyltransferase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of prostaglandin biosynthetic process; reproductive structure development; and surfactant homeostasis. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytosol; perinuclear region of cytoplasm; and zymogen granule. Used to study hyperglycemia. Biomarker of asthma; brain ischemia; papilloma; polycystic kidney disease; and transitional cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human PLA2G4A (phospholipase A2 group IVA); PARTICIPATES IN cyclooxygenase mediated pathway of arachidonic acid metabolism; endothelin signaling pathway; Fc epsilon receptor mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: cPLA2; cytosolic phospholipase A2; phospholipase A2 cytosolic; Phospholipase A2, cytosolic; phospholipase A2, group IVA (cytosolic, calcium-dependent); Pla2c; Pla2g4
