Domain

Patatin/Phospholipase A2-related (IPR002641)

Short name: Patatin/PLipase_A2-rel

Domain relationships

Description

This domain is structurally and functionally related to the animal cytosolic phospholipase A2.

This domain is found in the patatin glycoproteins from the total soluble protein in potato tubers [PMID: 3371664]. Patatin is a storage protein but it also has the enzymatic activity of lipid acyl hydrolase, catalysing the cleavage of fatty acids from membrane lipids [PMID: 3371664].
