phosphodiesterase
An enzyme that cleaves phosphodiesters to give a phosphomonoester and a free hydroxyl group. Examples include RNAase, DNAase, phospholipases C and D and the enzymes that convert cyclic nucleotides to the monoester forms. In casual usage the cAMP phosphodiesterase is usually meant.
