Gene: PLA2G6 (phospholipase A2 group VI) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PLA2G6
Name: phospholipase A2 group VI
CRRD ID: 732454
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity; palmitoyl-CoA hydrolase activity; and phospholipase activity. Involved in antibacterial humoral response and glycerophospholipid metabolic process. Localizes to centriolar satellite; cytosol; and extracellular space. Implicated in dystonia 12; neuroaxonal dystrophy; and neurodegenerative disease (multiple). Biomarker of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
