GeneCards Summary for NT5C3B Gene
NT5C3B (5'-Nucleotidase, Cytosolic IIIB) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Purine metabolism (KEGG). GO annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and 5-nucleotidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NT5C3A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NT5C3B Gene
Specifically hydrolyzes 7-methylguanosine monophosphate (m(7)GMP) to 7-methylguanosine and inorganic phosphate. The specific activity for m(7)GMP may protect cells against undesired salvage of m(7)GMP and its incorporation into nucleic acids. Also has weak activity for CMP. UMP and purine nucleotides are poor substrates.
