Gene: Pla2g4a (phospholipase A2, group IVA (cytosolic, calcium-dependent)) Mus musculus
Symbol: Pla2g4a
Name: phospholipase A2, group IVA (cytosolic, calcium-dependent)
Description: Exhibits phospholipase A2 activity. Involved in several processes, including arachidonic acid secretion; cellular response to antibiotic; and icosanoid biosynthetic process. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus; cytosol; and endoplasmic reticulum. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PLA2G4A (phospholipase A2 group IVA).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: cPLA2; cPLA2-alpha; cPLA2alpha; cytosolic phospholipase A2; Cytosolic phospholipase A2 (CPLA2); cytosolic PLA2; phospholipase A2 group IVA; phospholipase A2, group 4; Pla2g4; Type IV PLA2
