Exhibits phospholipase A2 activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including arachidonic acid secretion; low-density lipoprotein particle remodeling; and regulation of macrophage activation. Localizes to the cell surface. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; ear; genitourinary system; liver; and peripheral nervous system ganglion. Orthologous to human PLA2G5 (phospholipase A2 group V).
