The 3',5'-cyclic nucleotides cAMP and cGMP function as second messengers in a wide variety of signal transduction pathways. 3',5'-cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases (PDEs) catalyze the hydrolysis of cAMP and cGMP to the corresponding 5'-monophosphates and provide a mechanism to downregulate cAMP and cGMP signaling. This gene encodes a member of the PDE protein superfamily. Mutations in this gene are a cause of Cushing disease and adrenocortical hyperplasia. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for PDE11A Gene
PDE11A (Phosphodiesterase 11A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PDE11A include Pigmented Nodular Adrenocortical Disease, Primary, 2 and Primary Pigmented Nodular Adrenocortical Disease. Among its related pathways are GABAergic synapse and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include 3,5-cyclic-nucleotide phosphodiesterase activity and cGMP binding. An important paralog of this gene is PDE5A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PDE11A Gene
Plays a role in signal transduction by regulating the intracellular concentration of cyclic nucleotides cAMP and cGMP. Catalyzes the hydrolysis of both cAMP and cGMP to 5-AMP and 5-GMP, respectively.
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.
