Adenylyl cyclase type 1 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the ADCY1 gene.[1][2]

This gene encodes a form of adenylyl cyclase expressed in brain. A similar protein in mice is involved in pattern formation of the brain.[2]

Function

ADCY1 is a calmodulin-sensitive adenylyl cyclase. In terms of function, It may be involved in regulatory processes in the central nervous system; specifically, it may play a role in memory acquisition and learning. It is inhibited by the G protein beta and gamma subunit complex.[3]
