Two human isoforms of membrane associated phosphatidic acid phosphatase have been described (PAP-2a and -2b), and both enzymes have been shown to have broad substrate specificity and wide tissue distribution [Kai et al., J. Biol. Chem. 272 (1997) 24572-24578]. With this report we describe a third isoform, PAP-2c, that we found by searching the database of expressed sequence tags (dbEST) with PAP-2a and PAP-2b sequences. Key structural features described previously in PAP-2a and -2b, including… CONTINUE READING
