StorageMaintain 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.
PrecautionsPAFAH2 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Function Has a marked selectivity for phospholipids with short acyl chains at the sn-2 position. May share a common physiologic function with the plasma-type enzyme.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm. Membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P79106}; Lipid-anchor {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P79106}. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P79106}; Lipid-anchor {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P79106}. Note=In resting cells, localizes to intracellular membranes and cytoplasm. Translocates from the cytoplasm to intracellular membranes upon oxidative stress {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P79106}
Tissue Location Broadly expressed in different tissues, but high in B- and T-lymphocytes. In brain, expression is restricted to amygdala and frontal cortex.

This gene encodes platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase isoform 2, a single-subunit intracellular enzyme that catalyzes the removal of the acetyl group at the SN-2 position of platelet-activating factor (identified as 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glyceryl-3-phosphorylcholine). However, this lipase exhibits a broader substrate specificity than simply platelet activating factor. Two other isoforms of intracellular platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase exist, and both are multi-subunit enzymes. Additionally, there is a single-subunit serum isoform of this enzyme.
