ADCY3 a membrane-associated enzyme that catalyzes the formation of the secondary messenger cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). Widely expressed in various human tissues and may be involved in a number of physiological and pathophysiological metabolic processes. Involved in odorant detection (possibly) via modulation of intracellular cAMP concentration. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
