Guanylyl cyclase C (GCC, or GUCY2C; MIM 601330) producescGMP following the binding of either endogenous ligands orheat-stable enterotoxins secreted by E. coli and other entericbacteria. Activation of GCC initiates a signaling cascade thatleads to phosphorylation of the cystic fibrosis transmembraneconductance regulator (CFTR; MIM 602421), followed by a net effluxof ions and water into the intestinal lumen. IKEPP is a regulatoryprotein that associates with GCC and regulates the amount of cGMPproduced following receptor stimulation (Scott et al., 2002 [PubMed11950846]).
