Human group III secreted phospholipase A2 belongs to a superfamily of intracellular and secreted enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of glycerophospholipids at the sn-2 position to release fatty acids and lysophospholipids. Group III PLA2 enzymes were originally identified in invertebrates such as bees and scorpions. Human group III sPLA2 has been shown to be a calcium dependent enzyme. It consists of a central group III sPLA2 domain flanked by unique N- and C-terminal domains that are proteolytically removed in most tissues. The sPLA2 domain is sufficient for catalytic activity. SPLA2-III is preferentially expressed in the microvascular endothelium of tissues with inflammation, ischemic injury and cancer.
