  • WB - PLA2G4A Antibody (Center) AP8510c
    Western blot analysis of lysate from 293 cell line, using PLA2G4A Antibody (Center) (Cat. #AP8510c). AP8510c was diluted at 1:1000 at each lane. A goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L(HRP) at 1:5000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Lysate at 35ug.
  • IHC-P - PLA2G4A Antibody (Center) AP8510c
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human lung carcinoma with PLA2G4A Antibody (Center), which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • IF - PLA2G4A Antibody (Center) AP8510c
    Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of PLA2G4A Antibody (Center)(Cat. #AP8510c) with NCI-H460 cell followed by Alexa Fluor搴?488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit lgG (green). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclear (blue).
  • FC - PLA2G4A Antibody (Center) AP8510c
    Flow cytometric analysis of NCI-H292 cells using PLA2G4A Antibody (Center)(bottom histogram) compared to a negative control cell (top histogram). FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.

Protein Information
Name PLA2G4A
Synonyms CPLA2, PLA2G4
Function Selectively hydrolyzes arachidonyl phospholipids in the sn-2 position releasing arachidonic acid. Together with its lysophospholipid activity, it is implicated in the initiation of the inflammatory response.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Cytoplasmic vesicle. Note=Translocates to membrane vesicles in a calcium-dependent fashion
Tissue Location Expressed in various tissues such as macrophages, platelets, neutrophils, fibroblasts and lung endothelium

PLA2G4A is a member of the cytosolic phospholipase A2 group IV family. The enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of membrane phospholipids to release arachidonic acid which is subsequently metabolized into eicosanoids. Eicosanoids, including prostaglandins and leukotrienes, are lipid-based cellular hormones that regulate hemodynamics, inflammatory responses, and other intracellular pathways. The hydrolysis reaction also produces lysophospholipids that are converted into platelet-activating factor. The enzyme is activated by increased intracellular Ca(2+) levels and phosphorylation, resulting in its translocation from the cytosol and nucleus to perinuclear membrane vesicles.
