Gene Snapshot
Adenylyl cyclase 78C (Ac78C) encodes a member of the adenyly cyclase family of proteins. It converts adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to 3',5'-cyclic AMP (cAMP) and pyrophosphate. In taste receptor neurons, Ac78C product is involved in the sugar taste transduction pathway. [Date last reviewed: 2018-09-20]

ADENYLATE CYCLASES -
Adenylate cyclases catalyze the synthesis of cAMP from ATP, yielding diphosphate as a by-product. (Adapted from FBrf0238856).
Protein Function (UniProtKB)
Isoform B: Catalyzes the formation of the signaling molecule cAMP in response to G-protein coupled receptor signaling (PubMed:10603085, PubMed:23929551). Probably downstream of gustatory receptors, involved in taste perception of sucrose, trehalose and caffeine (PubMed:19046378). Has no role in bitter perception (PubMed:19046378). In the circadian brain neuron evening cells (E-cells), involved in circadian pacemaker synchronization by playing a role in signaling downstream of the G protein-coupled receptor Pdfr, probably in conjunction with other, as yet unidentified, adenylate cyclases (PubMed:23929551). Isoform C: Does not have adenylyl cyclase activity and it is not involved in taste perception.

Comments
Ac78C protein Catalyzes the synthesis of cAMP in vitro.
No adenylate cyclase activity was demonstrated in vitro for the shorter Ac78C protein isoform that contains the adenylate cyclase catalytic domains but that lacks the first six of the 12 transmembrane domains present in the longer isoform.
External Data
Domain
The protein contains two modules with six transmembrane helices each; both are required for catalytic activity. Isolated N-terminal or C-terminal guanylate cyclase domains have no catalytic activity, but when they are brought together, enzyme activity is restored. The active site is at the interface of the two domains. Both contribute substrate-binding residues, but the catalytic metal ions are bound exclusively via the N-terminal guanylate cyclase domain.
