Literature associating PPAP2B and childhood oligodendroglioma

PPAP2B [ENSP00000360296]

Vascular endothelial growth factor and type I collagen-inducible protein; Catalyzes the conversion of phosphatidic acid (PA) to diacylglycerol (DG). In addition it hydrolyzes lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), ceramide-1-phosphate (C-1-P) and sphingosine-1- phosphate (S-1-P). The relative catalytic efficiency is LPA = PA > C-1-P > S-1-P. May be involved in cell adhesion and in cell-cell interactions.
