PDE7B is a cAMP-specific phosphodiesterase and a member of the cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase family that catalyzes the hydrolysis of cAMP to the corresponding 5'-monophosphate and provides a mechanism to downregulate cAMP signaling (1). PDE7B is over-expressed in chronic lymphocytic leukemia and inhibition of PDE7B leads to induction of apoptosis (2). PDE7B has been identified as a candidate gene for measuring treatment response to risperidone and may confer susceptibility to schizophrenia.
