Background: Guanylyl Cyclase C/GUCY2C
GUCY2C (Guanylyl Cyclase C), also known as heat-stable enterotoxin receptor, is a type I transmembrane protein of the guanylate cyclase (gc) family that signal by producing cGMP (1, 2). GUCY2C contains a 23 amino acid (aa) signal sequence, a 407 aa extracellular region (ECD), a 24 aa transmembrane (TM) segment and a 619 aa cytoplasmic domain (3). The ECD of human GUCY2C shares 71% and 72% aa identity with mouse and rat GUCY2C, respectively (4). GUCY2C was first identified as the intestinal epithelial receptor regulating fluid and electrolyte transport in the secretory diarrhea induced by bacterial enterotoxins (5). Endogenous ligands of GUCY2C include guanylin and uroguanylin (6). GUCY2C in epithelial cells plays an important role in cell dynamics and homeostatic balance of proliferation, metabolism, and differentiation that organizes the guanylyl cyclase C hormone axis (2, 6). GUCY2C is also expressed in the brain and is implicated in attention deficiency and hyperactive behavior (2, 7). CAR-T cell therapy utilizing GUCY2C to treat metastatic colorectal cancer is currently being explored (8).
