GeneCards Summary for PCBD2 Gene
PCBD2 (Pterin-4 Alpha-Carbinolamine Dehydratase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are phenylalanine degradation/tyrosine biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include phenylalanine 4-monooxygenase activity and 4-alpha-hydroxytetrahydrobiopterin dehydratase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PCBD1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PCBD2 Gene
Involved in tetrahydrobiopterin biosynthesis. Seems to both prevent the formation of 7-pterins and accelerate the formation of quinonoid-BH2 (By similarity).
Regulates the dimerization of homeodomain protein HNF-1-alpha and enhances its transcriptional activity.
