Phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5) is an enzyme found in the trabecular smooth muscle of the penis. It catalyses the degradation of cGMP, which results in an elevated cytosolic calcium concentration and muscular contraction leading to erection. PDE-5 inhibitors such as sildenafil, vardenafil, and tadalafil block this biochemical pathway to promote erection. Sildenafil and vardenafil must be taken 1 hour before sexual activity to enable their action. Alprostadil is prostaglandin E1, which causes smooth muscle relaxation and subsequent vasodilation by acting on adenylate cyclase to increase the intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) concentration.
