PDE7B

PDE7B

A gene on chromosome 6q23-q24 that encodes a cAMP-specific cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase, which hydrolyses the second messenger cAMP to AMP and thus has a role in regulating physiological processes.

Four phosphodiesterases (PDE4D, PDE7A, PDE7B, and PDE8B) and two adenylate cyclases (ADCY2, ADCY4) were upregulated, and adenylate kinase (ADK) and AMP deaminase 3 (AMPD3) were downregulated in stimulated versus unstimulated cells.

We also assessed the expression of PDE1 (isoforms PDE1A, 1B and 1C), and PDE10A, which hydrolyze both cAMP and cGMP, as well as the cAMP-specific PDE7 enzyme isoforms, PDE7A, and PDE7B, whose presence in the brain is well documented [34-36].

Insel, professor of pharmacology and medicine at the UC San Diego School of Medicine, has found that high levels of a enzyme, called PDE7B, in the blood are an indicator that chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) - the most common form of adult leukaemia.
In the previous study, Insel's group had discovered that among a group of enzymes, cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases, one of the phosphodiesterases, PDE7B, was 10 times higher in CLL patients than in healthy individuals.
"The question was, could the level of PDE7B expression provide evidence for the clinical stage and diagnosis for individual patients?" Insel said.
This is a complex locus with a 10a proximal region in females containing 21 genes and a 10b distal region in both sexes containing 7 genes (Pde7b, Ahil, Myb, HbslL, Aldh8a1, Sgkl, and Raetle) [8].
Specifically, the expression of ADAMTS9 (ADAM metallopeptidase with thrombospondin type 1 motif 9), HOXA11a (homeobox A11a), and PDE7B (phosphodiesterase 7B) harboring lncRNAs ADAMTS9-AS2, Hoxa11as, and NTT on the respective antisense strand was compromised, while that of ITPR1 on the opposite strand of lncRNA EGO was unaltered at both 3 or 24 h post-LPS treatment (Supplementary Table 3).
We further observed a similar expression pattern for the genes HOXA11a and PDE7B antisense to Hoxa11as and NTT lncRNAs, respectively.
