Summaries for PDE7A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PDE7A Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase (PDE) family, and PDE7 subfamily. This PDE hydrolyzes the second messenger, cAMP, which is a regulator and mediator of a number of cellular responses to extracellular signals. Thus, by regulating the cellular concentration of cAMP, this protein plays a key role in many important physiological processes. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2011]

GeneCards Summary for PDE7A Gene

PDE7A (Phosphodiesterase 7A) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PDE7A include Leukemia, Chronic Lymphocytic. 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 PDE7B.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PDE7A Gene

  • Hydrolyzes the second messenger cAMP, which is a key regulator of many important physiological processes. May have a role in muscle signal transduction.

Tocris Summary for PDE7A Gene

  • Phosphodiesterases (PDEs) are a family of phosphohydrolyases that catalyze the hydrolysis of 3' cyclic phosphate bonds in adenosine and/or guanine 3',5' cyclic monophosphate (cAMP and/or cGMP). PDEs regulate the second messengers by controlling their degradation.
