(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID22925
Official gene symbolPLA2R1
Full namephospholipase A2 receptor 1, 180kDa
Gene summaryThis gene represents a phospholipase A2 receptor. The encoded protein likely exists as both a transmembrane form and a soluble form. The transmembrane receptor may play a role in clearance of phospholipase A2, thereby inhibiting its action. Polymorphisms at this locus have been associated with susceptibility to idiopathic membranous nephropathy. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
