|Application ||WB, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||87978 Da|
|Antigen Region||396-424 aa|
|Other Names||Cytosolic phospholipase A2 beta, cPLA2-beta, Phospholipase A2 group IVB, PLA2G4B|
|Target/Specificity||This PLA2G4B antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 396-424 amino acids from the Central region of human PLA2G4B.|
|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||PLA2G4B Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Calcium-dependent phospholipase A2 that selectively hydrolyzes glycerophospholipids in the sn-2 position with a preference for arachidonoyl phospholipids. Has a much weaker activity than PLA2G4A. Isoform 3 has calcium-dependent activity against palmitoyl-arachidonyl-phosphatidylethanolamine and low level lysophospholipase activity but no activity against phosphatidylcholine. Isoform 5 does have activity against phosphatidylcholine.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytosol|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Expressed at higher level in brain, heart, liver, cerebellum and pancreas. Isoform 3 is widely expressed.|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
PLA2G4B transcribes naturally-occurring mRNAs that are co-transcribed products of the neighboring JMJD7 and PLA2G4B genes. Incompletely processed read-through transcripts from these two loci are abundantly expressed in most tissues, but the function of the predicted protein product has not yet been determined.
