Calcium-dependent phospholipase A2 that selectively hydrolyzes glycerophospholipids in the sn-2 position. Has higher enzyme activity for phosphatidylethanolamine than phosphatidylcholine.
Contains 1 C2 domain. Contains 1 PLA2c domain.
The N-terminal C2 domain associates with lipid membranes upon calcium binding. It modulates enzyme activity by presenting the active site to its substrate in response to elevations of cytosolic Ca(2+).
Cytoplasm > cytosol. Lysosome membrane. Translocates to lysosomal membranes in a calcium-dependent fashion.
