PDE5A (cGMP-binding cGMP-specific phosphodiesterase) plays a role in signal transduction by regulating the intracellular concentration of cyclic nucleotides. This phosphodiesterase catalyzes the specific hydrolysis of cGMP to 5'-GMP. Through alternative splicing, the PDE5A gene produces three proteins (PDE5A1, PDE5A2, and PDE5A3) that differ in their N termini and range in mass from 89 to 105 kDa. (PMID: 25704994; 21215707). A second 70 kDa band was consistently observed in heart tissue that either reflected a splice variant or proteolytic fragment of PDE5A. (PMID: 15576651).
