    basic FUNCTION
  • dual-specificity phosphodiesterase that binds both cAMP and cGMP that is expressed in adrenal cortex
  • predispose to a variety of lesions (beyond micronodular adrenocortical hyperplasia) and may contribute to the development of these tumors in the general population
  • may have a role in the pain pathway of migraine as well as trigeminal neuralgia and trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias
  • plays a significant role in regulating brain function
  • genetic modifying factor for the development of testicular and adrenal tumors in patients with germline PRKAR1A mutation
