PDE7A

A gene on chromosome 8q13 that encodes a cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase, which hydrolyses the second messenger cAMP to AMP and is thus involved in regulating physiological processes. PDE7A is thought to have a role in signal transduction in muscle.

M2 EQUITYBITES-February 23, 2011-Omeros expands exclusive license to PDE7 inhibitors from Daiichi Sankyo(C)2011 M2 COMMUNICATIONS http://www.
Omeros' PDE7 programme was founded on the company's discovery of a previously unknown link between PDE7 and any movement disorder, such as Parkinson's disease.
The company said that it believes that it also is the first to link PDE7 to any addiction or compulsive behaviour, and is now advancing PDE7 inhibitors for the treatment of these as well as movement disorders.
From the advanced Daiichi compounds, Omeros has reportedly already selected a clinical candidate, and expects that addiction will provide it with a faster and less expensive development pathway for its PDE7 programme.
