PDE5A

PDE5A

A gene on chromosome 4q27 that encodes a cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase which hydrolyses cGMP to 5'-GMP, resulting in cardiac smooth muscle relaxation.

The crystallographic examination of PDE5A shows that the PDE Q pocket accommodates the pyrazolopyrimidinone group of sildenafil.
PDE5A inhibitors also can attenuate fibrosis associated PH both in patients and in the murine bleomycin model; this attenuation proceeds through the reduction of ROS and the RhoA/ROCK pathway [48, 49].

According to Kass, RGS2 is stimulated by an enzyme, protein kinase G, whose action is, in turn, raised by countering the activity of another enzyme, phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5A).
