High impact information on Ac3

  • DAC39E catalytic activity is inhibited by micromolar concentrations of calcium; therefore, DAC39E is oppositely regulated by calcium compared to the only other tmAC shown to be expressed in the Drosophila CNS, Rutabaga AC [1].
  • DAC39E protein sequence is most closely related to mammalian type III AC, and it is predominantly expressed in the central nervous system (CNS) and olfactory organs, suggesting a role in processing sensory signaling inputs [1].
