Technical Data
Phosphodiesterase 6 beta (Phosphodiesterase 6B, Phosphodiesterase 6B cGMP-specific Rod beta, PDE6 beta, PDE6B, Congenital Stationary Night Blindness 3 Autosomal Dominant, CSNB3, Dunce-like Phosphodiesterase 4, DPDE4, GMP-PDE beta, PDEB, Rd1, Rod cGMP-spec
Photon absorption triggers a signaling cascade in rod photoreceptors that activates cGMP phosphodiesterase (PDE), resulting in the rapid hydrolysis of cGMP, closure of cGMP-gated cation channels and hyperpolarization of the cell. PDE is a peripheral membrane heterotrimeric enzyme made up of alpha, beta and gamma subunits. This gene encodes the beta subunit. Mutations in this gene result in retinitis pigmentosa and autosomal dominant congenital stationary night blindness. Multiple transcript variants encoding difference isoforms have been found for this gene.

Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
