PURPOSE Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) is a growing family of lipolytic enzymes that play a key role in various biological processes including general lipid metabolism, membrane homeostasis, and in diseases such as atherosclerosis, arthritis, and acute pancreatitis. Oxidative stress as well as inflammation may be associated with glaucoma pathogenesis. Therefore, our aim was to examine the expression of group IIA secretory PLA2 (sPLA2-IIA), group V secretory PLA2 (sPLA2-V), calcium-independent PLA2… CONTINUE READING
