  1. Purified human PDE12ΔmTP-His or PDE12ΔmTP-His in HeLa cell protein extracts were incubated for 1 h at 37 °C in reactions with A(pA)3, A(pA)4 or)pA)5as substrates. The specific enzyme activities were calculated based on the chromatographic elution profiles, using the formulas outlined in the methods section. DsRed, EV and -: extracts from HeLa cells transfected with a construct encoding red-fluorescent protein, the empty-vector of pTriEx-3 Neo or mock-transfected, respectively. no enzyme: control reaction in which PDE12ΔmTP-His was omitted from the reaction. The data are provided as mean values of three replicates with ± values listing the standard error of the mean (s.e.m.)
