Immunoprecipitation of PLA2G15 transfected lysate using anti-PLA2G15 MaxPab rabbit polyclonal antibody and Protein A Magnetic Bead (U0007), and immunoblotted with PLA2G15 purified MaxPab mouse polyclonal antibody (B01P) (H00023659-B01P).
Lysophospholipases are enzymes that act on biological membranes to regulate the multifunctional lysophospholipids. The protein encoded by this gene hydrolyzes lysophosphatidylcholine to glycerophosphorylcholine and a free fatty acid. This enzyme is present in the plasma and thought to be associated with high-density lipoprotein. A later paper contradicts the function of this gene. It demonstrates that this gene encodes a lysosomal enzyme instead of a lysophospholipase and has both calcium-independent phospholipase A2 and transacylase activities. [provided by RefSeq
