Adenylate Cyclase 6 (ADCY6)

ATP pyrophosphate-lyase 6; Adenylate cyclase type VI; Ca(2+)-inhibitable adenylyl cyclase

Adenylate Cyclase 6 (ADCY6)

Adenylate cyclase type 6 is a membrane-associated enzyme and catalyzes the formation of the secondary messenger cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). The expression of this gene is found in normal thyroid and brain tissues, as well as some tumors; and its expression is significantly higher in one hyperfunctioning thyroid tumor than in normal thyroid tissue. Alternative splicing generates 2 transcript variants.By Southern blot analysis of somatic cell hybrid DNAs, Gaudin et al. (1994) mapped the ADCY6 gene to chromosome 12. The homologous mouse gene is located on chromosome 15 in the F region.
