This gene encodes a plasma membrane-bound divalent cation-dependent E-type nucleotidase. The encoded protein is involved in the regulation of extracellular levels of ATP by hydrolysis of it and other nucleotides. Multiple transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, May 2014]
GeneCards Summary for ENTPD3 Gene
ENTPD3 (Ectonucleoside Triphosphate Diphosphohydrolase 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Pyrimidine metabolism (KEGG) and Purine metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and nucleoside-diphosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ENTPD2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ENTPD3 Gene
Has a threefold preference for the hydrolysis of ATP over ADP.
Ectonucleotidases (also known as NTPDases, Ecto-ATPases, ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase) are constitutively expressed ectoenzymes that hydrolyze extracellular nucleotides. There are four known major families of ectonucleotidases.
