Adenylate cyclase is a membrane bound enzyme that catalyses the formation of cyclic AMP from ATP. It is regulated by a family of G protein-coupled receptors, protein kinases, and calcium. The type 9 adenylyl cyclase is a widely distributed adenylyl cyclase, and it is stimulated by beta-adrenergic receptor activation but is insensitive to forskolin, calcium, and somatostatin.

GeneCards Summary for ADCY9 Gene
ADCY9 (Adenylate Cyclase 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADCY9 include Pyometritis and Malaria. Among its related pathways are Adenylate cyclase inhibitory pathway and DAG and IP3 signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include phosphorus-oxygen lyase activity and adenylate cyclase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADCY5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ADCY9 Gene
Adenylyl cyclase that catalyzes the formation of the signaling molecule cAMP in response to activation of G protein-coupled receptors (PubMed:9628827, PubMed:12972952, PubMed:15879435, PubMed:10987815). Contributes to signaling cascades activated by CRH (corticotropin-releasing factor), corticosteroids and beta-adrenergic receptors (PubMed:9628827).
Adenylyl Cyclases (AC) are a group of enzymes that convert adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) into 3',5'-adenosine monophosphate (cyclic AMP/cAMP) and pyrophosphate. There are ten different mammalian isoforms of adenylyl cylase; nine of which are membrane-bound.
