Target (abbrv.) ASM3A
Target (full name) Acid sphingomyelinase-like phosphodiesterase 3a
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL012754 (4771-10_3)
Entrez Gene Symbol SMPDL3A
UniProt ID Q92484
UniProt Comment
  • Has in vitro nucleotide phosphodiesterase activity with nucleoside triphosphates, such as ATP (PubMed:25288789, PubMed:26783088). Has in vitro activity with p-nitrophenyl-TMP (PubMed:25288789). Has lower activity with nucleoside diphosphates, and no activity with nucleoside monophosphates (PubMed:25288789, PubMed:26783088). Has in vitro activity with CDP-choline, giving rise to CMP and phosphocholine. Has in vitro activity with CDP-ethanolamine (PubMed:26783088). Does not have sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase activity (PubMed:25288789, PubMed:26783088).

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs28385609) and 3 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
