Phospholipase ABHD3 (Abhd3)

Phospholipase that may play a part in phospholipids remodeling. May selectively cleave myristate (C14)-containing phosphatidylcholines through its overriding phospholipase 1 activity, cleaving preferentially acyl groups in sn1 position.

In parallel, might have a minor phospholipase 2 activity acting on acyl groups in position sn2. In addition to (C14)-containing phosphatidylcholines, may also act on other medium-chain- containing and oxidatively truncated phospholipids.
