25822812 Genetic variation of the PDE8B gene may be involved in the etiology of subclinical hypothyroidism in pregnant women.
24497218 A prevalence of the minor allele of PDE8B gene polymorphism associated with elevated serum levels of TSH was demonstrated in patients affected by sporadic nonautoimmune subclinical hypothyroidism.
23941514 rs4704397 is associated with thyroid function, risk of MI, and body height.
23272636 rs4704397 in phosphodiesterase 8B is associated with thyrotropin and thyroid hormone concentrations
23237535 There is an association between homozygous A/A as well as homozygous G/G carriers of SNP rs 4704397 in PDE8B and recurrent miscarriage.
22781450 PDE8B gene polymorphisms may be correlated with hyperthyroxinemia in the Chinese Han population.
22335482 PDE8B is another PDE gene in which variations may contribute to predisposition of adrenocortical tumours.
22084153 In obese children, PDE8B is associated with TSH; the interaction between adiposity and PDE8B on TSH is not synergistic, but follows an additive model.
21317282 Common genetic variation in PDE8B is associated with reciprocal changes in thyroid hormone levels.
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
20373981 Our analysis revealed separate segregation of an inactivating PDE8B allele from the high-TSH-allele and showed low TSH levels in persons who carry an inactivating PDE8B allele. These data suggest that PDE8B may be involved in regulation of TSH levels.
20085714 phosphodiesterase 8B has a role in autosomal-dominant striatal degeneration
19820008 Genetic variation in thyroid stimulating hormone levels in pregnancy associated with the PDE8B rs4704397 genotype has implications for the number of women treated for subclinical hypothyroidism under current guidelines
19820008 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19429701 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18514160 results suggest a primary effect of PDE8B variants on cAMP levels in the thyroid. This would affect production of T4 and T3 and feedback to alter TSH release by the pituitary.
18514160 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18431404 PDE8B is another PDE gene linked to isolated micronodular adrenocortical disease; it is a candidate causative gene for other adrenocortical lesions linked to the cAMP signaling pathway and possibly for tumors in other tissues.
12895443 In Alzheimer's disease brains we found that PDE8B was the only PDE isozyme showing a significant increase, in cortical areas and parts of the hippocampal formation, at Braak stages III-VI
12681444 Comparison of enzymatic characterization and gene organization of PDE8B and PDE8A.
