Summaries for PDE7B Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PDE7B Gene

  • 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 cAMP-specific phosphodiesterase, a member of the cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase family.[provided by RefSeq, Apr 2009]

GeneCards Summary for PDE7B Gene

PDE7B (Phosphodiesterase 7B) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Pyrimidine metabolism (KEGG) and Signaling by GPCR. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include 3,5-cyclic-nucleotide phosphodiesterase activity and 3,5-cyclic-AMP phosphodiesterase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PDE7A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PDE7B Gene

  • Hydrolyzes the second messenger cAMP, which is a key regulator of many important physiological processes. May be involved in the control of cAMP-mediated neural activity and cAMP metabolism in the brain.
