Soluble guanylate cyclases are heterodimeric proteins that catalyze the conversion of GTP to 3',5'-cyclic GMP and pyrophosphate. The protein encoded by this gene is an alpha subunit of this complex and it interacts with a beta subunit to form the guanylate cyclase enzyme, which is activated by nitric oxide. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GUCY1A2 Gene
Guanylyl Cyclases (GC) are a group of enzymes that, in the presence of a metal ion co-factor such as Mg2+ or Mn2+, convert guanosine-5'-triphosphate (GTP) into 3',5'-guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) and pyrophosphate. There are two main groups of guanylyl cyclase.
