ADCY8 (P40145) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis


ADCY8, Adenylate cyclase type 8
Enzyme Classification
UniProt P40145

Also Known as ADCY8_HUMAN, ADCY8

Catalyzes the formation of cAMP in response to calcium entry leadings to cAMP signaling activation that affect processes suche as synaptic plasticity and insulin secretion. Plays a role in many brain functions, such as learning, memory, drug addiction, and anxiety modulation through regulation of synaptic plasticity by modulating long-term memory and long-term potentiation (LTP) through CREB transcription factor activity modulation. Plays a central role in insulin secretion by controlling glucose homeostasis through glucagon-like peptide 1 and glucose signaling pathway and maintains insulin secretion through calcium-dependent PKA activation leading to vesicle pool replenishment. Also, allows PTGER3 to induce potentiation of PTGER4-mediated PLA2 secretion by switching from a negative to a positive regulation, during the IL1B induced-dedifferentiation of smooth muscle cells. Homodimer; via transmembrane domain. Monomer. Heterodimer. Oligemer; via transmembrane domain. Interacts with PRKAR2A and AKAP5; inhibits adenylate cyclase activity through PKA phosphorylation. Interacts with PPP2CA and PPP2R1A; does not mediate the inhibitory effects of PKA on adenylate cyclase activity; interaction is dependent of catalytically active PPP2CA; antagonizes interaction with calmodulin. Interacts with AKAP5 (palmitoylated form); promotes the phosphorylation of ADCY8 after store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) stimulation at membrane raft. Interacts with ORAI1; interaction is calcium store depletion independent; interaction occurs in membrane raft; interaction increases markedly after store depletion; positively regulates SOCE-induced adenylate cyclase activity; contributes to the targeting of ADCY8 to discrete regions of the plasma membrane that are shielded from other calcium events. Interacts with STIM1. Interacts with actin; interaction is calcium independent; interaction is affected by calcium-calmodulin; interaction controls the distribution and regulation of ADCY8. Interacts with calmodulin; at rest, interacts via N-terminal domain; upon a calcium rise, calmodulin becomes calcium-saturated and subsequently binds to the C-terminal domain forming an autoinhibitory complex; fully calcium-saturated calmodulin leaves the N-terminal domain, binding solely to the C-terminal domain leading to dissociation of autoinhibitory complex and resulting in activation of adenylate cyclase; antagonizes interaction with PPP2CA; interaction is calcium dependent. Interacts with PPP2R5D.
