Gene: PLA2G4A (phospholipase A2 group IVA) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PLA2G4A
Name: phospholipase A2 group IVA
RGD ID: 735872
Description: Exhibits several functions, including calcium ion binding activity; phospholipase activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Involved in glycerolipid metabolic process; icosanoid metabolic process; and positive regulation of platelet activation. Localizes to several cellular components, including Golgi membrane; lipid droplet; and nuclear envelope.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: calcium-dependent phospholipid-binding protein; cPLA2; cPLA2-alpha; cytosolic phospholipase A2; GURDP; lysophospholipase; MGC126350; phosphatidylcholine 2-acylhydrolase; phospholipase A2, group IVA (cytosolic, calcium-dependent); PLA2G4
