cAMP-specific 3',5'-cyclic phosphodiesterase 4B, also known as PDE4B and DPDE4, is a member of the cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase family. PDE4 subfamily. Cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterases (PDEs) comprise a large family of enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of cAMP or cGMP and are implicated in various diseases. The crystal structures reveal a common scheme of inhibitor binding to the PDEs: (i) a hydrophobic clamp formed by highly conserved hydrophobic residues that sandwich the inhibitor in the active site; (ii) hydrogen bonding to an invariant glutamine that controls the orientation of inhibitor binding. A scaffold can be readily identified for any given inhibitor based on the formation of these two types of conserved interactions. These structural insights will enable the design of isoform-selective inhibitors with improved binding affinity and should facilitate the discovery of more potent and selective PDE inhibitors for the treatment of a variety of diseases. PDE4B / DPDE4 hydrolyzes the second messenger cAMP, which is a key regulator of many important physiological processes. It is expressed in brain, heart, lung and skeletal muscle. PDE4B / DPDE4 may be involved in mediating central nervous system effects of therapeutic agents ranging from antidepressants to antiasthmatic and anti-inflammatory agents
