PDE3B(redirected from cGMP-inhibited 3',5'-cyclic phosphodiesterase B)
PDE3BA gene on chromosome 11q15.1 that encodes a cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase, which plays a critical role in signal transduction, regulating intracellular cyclic nucleotide concentrations by hydrolysing second messengers cAMP and/or cGMP to AMP and GMP, and in turn regulating physiological processes. PDE3B may have a role in fat metabolism.
