Phosphodiesterase 1C (Phosphodiesterase 1C Calmodulin Dependent 70kDa, Phosphodiesterase 1C Calmodulin-dependent, PDE1C, Calcium/calmodulin-dependent 3'5'-cyclic Nucleotide Phosphodiesterase 1C, Cam-PDE-1C, hCAM3, hCAM-3, HSPDE1C1A, Human 3'5' Cyclic Nucl
PDE1C is a phosphodiesterase activated by the binding of calmodulin in the presence of calcium. Cyclic nucleotides are hydrolyzed and compartmentalized by a family of enzymes called phosphodiesterases. In mammals at least 11 different families of PDEs can be discriminated (PDE1-11) based on their kinetic properties and inhibition to various pharmacological agents. Three different PDE1 genes have been identified (PDE1A, PDE1B, PDE1C). The enzymes of the PDE1A and PDE1B have higher affinity for cGMP than for cAMP, where as, PDE1C has high affinity for both cAMP and cGMP. Calcium-Calmodulin stimulates the activity of each of these enzymes several-fold. The PDE1C gene codes a family of proteins (variants) that differ from each other at amino and carboxy termini of the protein. The tissue distribution of PDE1C is different from other PDE1 gene family members.

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

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry (Frozen/paraffin): 1:10-1:500
Immunoprecipitation: 1:10-1:500
Western Blot: 1:250-1:500
Note: In Immunoprecipitation and Western Blot, this antibody may exhibit mulitple bands in the 70-87kD range which are believed to be various PDE1C variants.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
