The gamma subunit of the rod photoreceptor cGMP phosphodiesterase can modulate the proteolysis of two cGMP binding cGMP-specific phosphodiesterases (PDE6 and PDE5) by caspase-3



The gamma subunit of the rod photoreceptor cGMP phosphodiesterase can modulate the proteolysis of two cGMP binding cGMP-specific phosphodiesterases (PDE6 and PDE5) by caspase-3



Cellular Signalling 13(10): 735-741



We have investigated whether the proteolysis of members of the cGMP binding phosphodiesterases (PDE6, PDE5A1, and PDE10A2) by caspase-3 is modulated by the gamma inhibitor subunit of PDE6. We show here that purified caspase-3 proteolyses PDE6, an enzyme composed of two nonidentical catalytic subunits (termed alpha and beta) with molecular mass of 88 and 84 kDa. The proteolysis of PDE6 produced a single fragment with a molecular mass of 78 kDa.
