Specificity / Sensitivity
cPLA2 (D49A7) Rabbit mAb detects endogenous levels of total cPLA2 protein.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Glu245 of human cPLA2 protein.
Cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) is a ubiquitously distributed enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of the sn-2 acyl bond of glycerolipids to produce lysophospholipids and release arachidonic acid (1). cPLA2 has been implicated in diverse cellular responses such as mitogenesis, differentiation, inflammation and cytotoxicity (1). Calcium binding to the amino-terminal CalB domain of cPLA2 promotes the translocation of cPLA2 from cytosol to membrane, where cPLA2 cleaves arachidonic acid from natural membrane (2). Phosphorylation of cPLA2 by MAPK (p42/44 and p38) at Ser505 (3,4) and Ser727 (5) stimulates its catalytic activity.
