PDE6 is a cGMP-specific PDE family and presents multicomponent enzyme complexes. The rod PDE6 enzyme is comprised of two catalytic subunits, PDE6A and PDE6B and it is expressed in human lungs(PMID:20979602). PDE6B(Rod cGMP-specific 3',5'-cyclic phosphodiesterase subunit beta) is also named as PDEB and belongs to the cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase family. PDE6B also has a C-terminal CAAX motif for posttranslational processing involving lipidation, proteolysis, and carboxymethylation(PMID:8394243). Defects in PDE6B are the cause of retinitis pigmentosa type 40 (RP40)(PMID:22334370) and congenital stationary night blindness autosomal dominant type 2 (CSNBAD2)(PMID:8075643).
