PLA2G2E encodes the human gene, Phospholipase A2 group IIE. It may also be known as: Group IIE secretory phospholipase A2; GIIE sPLA2; sPLA2-IIE; Phosphatidylcholine 2-acylhydrolase 2E; phospholipase A2, group IIE. The encoded protein is an enzyme with an amino acid length of 142 and a mass of 16.0 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. PLA2G2E is a member of the Phospholipase A2 family. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat, Frog, Chicken.
