|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||15674 Da|
|Antigen Region||103-132 aa|
|Other Names||Calcium-dependent phospholipase A2, Group V phospholipase A2, PLA2-10, Phosphatidylcholine 2-acylhydrolase 5, PLA2G5|
|Target/Specificity||This PLA2G5 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 103-132 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human PLA2G5.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||PLA2G5 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||PA2 catalyzes the calcium-dependent hydrolysis of the 2- acyl groups in 3-sn-phosphoglycerides. This isozyme hydrolyzes more efficiently L-alpha-1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl phosphatidylcholine than L-alpha-1-palmitoyl-2-arachidonyl phosphatidylcholine, L- alpha-1-palmitoyl-2-arachidonyl phosphatidylethanolamine, or L- alpha-1-stearoyl-2-arachidonyl phosphatidylinositol. May be involved in the production of lung surfactant, the remodeling or regulation of cardiac muscle.|
|Tissue Location||Heart, placenta and less abundantly, in lung. Detected in the outer and inner plexiform layers of the retina (at protein level).|

This gene is a member of the secretory phospholipase A2 family. It is located in a tightly-linked cluster of secretory phospholipase A2 genes on chromosome 1. The encoded enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of membrane phospholipids to generate lysophospholipids and free fatty acids including arachidonic acid. It preferentially hydrolyzes linoleoyl-containing phosphatidylcholine substrates. Secretion of this enzyme is thought to induce inflammatory responses in neighboring cells. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found, but their full-length nature has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq].
