Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.1.1)
Enables calcium-dependent phospholipase A2 activity. Involved in several processes, including arachidonic acid secretion; glycerophospholipid metabolic process; and icosanoid biosynthetic process. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including cellular response to antibiotic; icosanoid biosynthetic process; and positive regulation of prostaglandin secretion. Located in Golgi apparatus; cytosol; and endoplasmic reticulum. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PLA2G4A (phospholipase A2 group IVA).
