Technical Data
PLA2G16, NT (Group XVI Phospholipase A2, Adipose-specific Phospholipase A2, AdPLA, H-rev 107 Protein Homolog, HRAS-like Suppressor 3, HREV107, HREV107-3, Renal Carcinoma Antigen NY-REN-65, HRASLS3)
PLA2G16 (Group 16 phospholipase A2; also HREV107 and AdPLA) is a Ca++-dependent 17-18kD member of the H-rev107 family of molecules. It is expressed intracellularly by white adipocytes, induced by insulin, and generates arachadonic acid from phospholipids. The arachadonic acid is converted to PGE2, which binds the EP3 receptor and decreases cAMP levels. This results in decreased hormone-sensitive lipase activity and increased adiposity. Human PLA216 is 16211aa in length. It is associated with both membranes and cytosol, and may possess a transmembrane segment between aa134-154. The enzymatic activity resides in His23 and Cys113. There is one potential isoform that shows a 20aa substitution for the first 4aa. Over aa12-132, human PLA2G16 shares 88% aa identity with mouse PLA2G16.
