From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the DHH protein superfamily of phosphoesterases. This protein has been found to function as both a nucleotide phosphodiesterase and an exopolyphosphatase. This protein is believed to stimulate cancer progression and metastases through the induction of cell motility. A pseuodgene has been identified on chromosome 13. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]
Phosphodiesterase (PDE) that has higher activity toward cAMP than cGMP, as substrate. Plays a role in cell proliferation, migration and differentiation, and acts as a negative regulator of NME1. Plays a role in the regulation of neurogenesis (PubMed:28334956). Involved in the regulation of microtubule polymerization (PubMed:28334956).

- Neurodevelopmental disorder with microcephaly, hypotonia, and variable brain anomalies
Neurodevelopmental disorder with microcephaly, hypotonia, and variable brain anomalies (NMIHBA): An autosomal recessive neurodevelopmental and degenerative disorder characterized by primary microcephaly, profound global developmental delay, and severe intellectual disability. Additional clinical features include dysmorphic features, truncal hypotonia, peripheral spasticity, and lack of independent ambulation or speech acquisition. Brain imaging shows cortical atrophy, thin corpus callosum, cerebellar hypoplasia, and delayed myelination. [MIM:617481]
