Official Full Name
guanylate cyclase 1, soluble, alpha 2
Soluble guanylate cyclases are heterodimeric proteins that catalyze the conversion of GTP to 3,5-cyclic GMP and;pyrophosphate. The protein encoded by this gene is an alpha subunit of this complex and it interacts with a beta;subunit to form the guanylate cyclase enzyme, which is activated by nitric oxide. Two transcript variants encoding;different isoforms have been found for this gene.
