Summaries for PDE6G Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PDE6G Gene

  • This gene encodes the gamma subunit of cyclic GMP-phosphodiesterase, which is composed of alpha- and beta- catalytic subunits and two identical, inhibitory gamma subunits. This gene is expressed in rod photoreceptors and functions in the phototransduction signaling cascade. It is also expressed in a variety of other tissues, and has been shown to regulate the c-Src protein kinase and G-protein-coupled receptor kinase 2. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2009]

GeneCards Summary for PDE6G Gene

PDE6G (Phosphodiesterase 6G) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PDE6G include Retinitis Pigmentosa 57 and Retinitis Pigmentosa. Among its related pathways are Phototransduction and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. GO annotations related to this gene include enzyme inhibitor activity and 3,5-cyclic-nucleotide phosphodiesterase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PDE6H.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PDE6G Gene

  • Participates in processes of transmission and amplification of the visual signal. cGMP-PDEs are the effector molecules in G-protein-mediated phototransduction in vertebrate rods and cones.

Tocris Summary for PDE6G Gene

  • Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) are a family of phosphohydrolyases that catalyze the hydrolysis of 3' cyclic phosphate bonds in adenosine and/or guanine 3',5' cyclic monophosphate (cAMP and/or cGMP). PDEs regulate the second messengers by controlling their degradation.

  • Retinitis pigmentosa 57 (RP57) [MIM:613582]: A retinal dystrophy belonging to the group of pigmentary retinopathies. Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:20655036}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
