Ectonucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase 6
CD39L2, NTPDase6, ENTPD6
ENTPD6 is similar to E-type nucleotidases (NTPases). NTPases, such as CD39, mediate catabolism of extracellular nucleotides. ENTPD6 contains 4 apyrase-conserved regions which is characteristic of NTPases. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

A secondary structural model of NTPDase-6 is proposed based on disulfide architecture (four conserved cysteine residues Cys249-Cys280 and Cys340-Cys354, circular dichroism data, and regions of conservation among all NTPDases.
