UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NT5C3B Gene
Specifically hydrolyzes 7-methylguanosine monophosphate (m(7)GMP) to 7-methylguanosine and inorganic phosphate (PubMed:23223233, PubMed:24603684). The specific activity for m(7)GMP may protect cells against undesired salvage of m(7)GMP and its incorporation into nucleic acids (PubMed:23223233). Also has weak activity for CMP (PubMed:23223233, PubMed:24603684). UMP and purine nucleotides are poor substrates (PubMed:23223233).
