  Domain Name: PLA2_B
Lysophospholipase catalytic domain. This family consists of Lysophospholipase / phospholipase B EC: and cytosolic phospholipase A2 EC:3.1.4 which also has a C2 domain pfam00168. Phospholipase B enzymes catalyze the release of fatty acids from lysophsopholipids and are capable in vitro of hydrolysing all phospholipids extractable form yeast cells. Cytosolic phospholipase A2 associates with natural membranes in response to physiological increases in Ca2+ and selectively hydrolyses arachidonyl phospholipids, the aligned region corresponds the the carboxy-terminal Ca2+-independent catalytic domain of the protein as discussed in.
