Detection of Human PLA2G16 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of human heart tissue. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human PLA2G16 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6190) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for PLA2G16 at approximately 17 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

PLA2G16 (Group 16 phospholipase A2; also HREV107 and AdPLA) is a Ca++‑dependent 17‑18 kDa 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 162 amino acids (aa) in length. It is associated with both membranes and cytosol, and may possess a transmembrane segment between aa 134‑154. The enzymatic activity resides in His23 and Cys113. There is one potential isoform that shows a 20 aa substitution for the first four amino acids. Over aa 12 ‑ 132, human PLA2G16 shares 88% aa identity with mouse PLA2G16.
