Gene: PDE6B (phosphodiesterase 6B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PDE6B
Name: phosphodiesterase 6B
Description: Predicted to have 3',5'-cyclic-GMP phosphodiesterase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including detection of light stimulus; entrainment of circadian clock by photoperiod; and retina development in camera-type eye. Predicted to localize to photoreceptor outer segment. Implicated in congenital stationary night blindness autosomal dominant 2 and retinitis pigmentosa 40.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
