GeneCards Summary for GUCY2C Gene

GUCY2C (Guanylate Cyclase 2C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GUCY2C include intestinal obstruction in the newborn due to guanylate cyclase 2c deficiency and chronic diarrhea due to guanylate cyclase 2c overactivity. Among its related pathways are CREB Pathway and Nanog in Mammalian ESC Pluripotency. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADCY5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GUCY2C Gene

  • Receptor for the E.coli heat-stable enterotoxin (E.coli enterotoxin markedly stimulates the accumulation of cGMP in mammalian cells expressing GC-C). Also activated by the endogenous peptides guanylin and uroguanylin
