GeneCards Summary for GUCY1B2 Gene

GUCY1B2 (Guanylate Cyclase 1 Soluble Subunit Beta 2 (Pseudogene)) is a Pseudogene. Diseases associated with GUCY1B2 include Lung Cancer. Among its related pathways are Apoptosis and survival_Anti-apoptotic action of nuclear ESR1 and ESR2 and Endothelin Pathways.

Tocris Summary for GUCY1B2 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.
