Group IV Phospholipases A2 MeSH Descriptor Data 2022

MeSH Heading
Group IV Phospholipases A2
Tree Number(s)
Unique ID
RDF Unique Identifier
/antag: coordinate with PHOSPHOLIPASE A2 INHIBITORS
Scope Note
A cytosolic phospholipase A2 group that plays an important role in the release of free ARACHIDONIC ACID, which in turn is metabolized to PROSTAGLANDINS by the CYCLOOXYGENASE pathway and to LEUKOTRIENES by the 5-LIPOXYGENASE pathway.
