The phospholipase A2 superfamily and its group numbering system.
The superfamily of phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)) enzymes currently consists of 15 Groups and many subgroups and includes five distinct types of enzymes, namely the secreted PLA(2)s (sPLA(2)), theExpand

The expanding superfamily of phospholipase A(2) enzymes: classification and characterization.
The phospholipase A(2) (PLA(2)) superfamily consists of a broad range of enzymes defined by their ability to catalyze the hydrolysis of the middle (sn-2) ester bond of substrate phospholipids. TheExpand
