AKAP79/AKAP5 Information: AKAP79/AKAP5 Protein, AKAP79/AKAP5 Antibody and AKAP79/AKAP5 Gene

AKAP79/AKAP5 Gene family

AKAP79/AKAP5 Protein

AKAP79/AKAP5 protein function

May anchor the PKA protein to cytoskeletal and/or organelle-associated proteins, targeting the signal carried by cAMP to specific intracellular effectors. Association with to the beta2-adrenergic receptor (beta2-AR) not only regulates beta2-AR signaling pathway, but also the activation by PKA by switching off the beta2-AR signaling cascade.

AKAP79/AKAP5 protein expression

Tissue specificity

Predominantly in the cerebral cortex and the postsynaptic densities of the forebrain, and to a lesser extent in adrenal medulla, lung and anterior pituitary.
