Phosphodiesterase 4B (PDE4B, PDEIVB, cAMP-specific 3',5'-cyclic Phosphodiesterase 4B, DPDE4, PDE32)
Description:
This gene is a member of the type IV, cyclic AMP (cAMP)-specific, cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase (PDE) family. Cyclic nucleotides are important second messengers that regulate and mediate a number of cellular responses to extracellular signals, such as hormones, light, and neurotransmitters. The cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases (PDEs) regulate the cellular concentrations of cyclic nucleotides and thereby play a role in signal transduction. This gene encodes a protein that specifically hydrolyzes cAMP. Altered activity of this protein has been associated with schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Peptide ELISA Titer: 1:8000
Western Blot: 0.5-1ug/ml ~85kD band observed in Mouse Brain lysates (calculated MW of 83.3kD according to Human NP_002591.2 and 82.1kD according to Mouse NP_062814.2). In transfected HEK293 transiently expressing Human PDE4B a band of approx. 85kD is observed. This band is not observed in the non-transfected HEK293.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
