Official Full Name
phospholipase A2, group XV
Lysophospholipases are enzymes that act on biological membranes to regulate the multifunctional lysophospholipids. The;protein encoded by this gene hydrolyzes lysophosphatidylcholine to glycerophosphorylcholine and a free fatty acid.;This enzyme is present in the plasma and thought to be associated with high-density lipoprotein. A later paper;contradicts the function of this gene. It demonstrates that this gene encodes a lysosomal enzyme instead of a;lysophospholipase and has both calcium-independent phospholipase A2 and transacylase activities.
