Rapid, voltage-dependent potentiation of skeletal muscle L-type calcium channels requires phosphorylation by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) anchored via an A kinase anchoring protein (AKAP). Here we report the isolation, primary sequence determination, and functional characterization of AKAP15, a lipid-anchored protein of 81 amino acid residues with a(More)
Peripheral corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) receptor ligands inhibit gastric acid secretion and emptying while stimulating gastric mucosal blood flow in rats. Endogenous CRF ligands are expressed in the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tissues pointing to local expression of CRF receptors. We mapped the distribution of CRF receptor type 1 (CRF1) and 2 (CRF2)(More)
Activation of D1-like dopamine (DA) receptors reduces peak Na(+) current in hippocampal neurons voltage-dependent in a manner via phosphorylation of the alpha subunit. This modulation is dependent upon activation of cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) and requires phosphorylation of serine 573 (S573) in the intracellular loop connecting homologous domains I(More)
Metal transcription factor-1 (MTF-1) is a ubiquitous transcriptional regulator and chromatin insulator with roles in cellular stress responses and embryonic development. The studies described herein establish for the first time the involvement of MTF-1 in tumor development. Genetically manipulated ras-transformed mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs),(More)
There has been great interest in melanocortin (MC) receptors as targets for the design of novel therapeutics to treat disorders of body weight, such as obesity and cachexia. Both genetic and pharmacological evidence points toward central MC4 receptors as the principal target. Using highly selective peptide tools for the MC4 receptor, which have become(More)
The precision of cAMP-responsive events is controlled in part through compa~tmentaliza tion of the signal transduction machine~. Recent evidence suggests that the cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) is localized to specific subcellular compartments through association with A Kinase Anchoring Proteins (AKAPs). The AKAPs now represent a functionally(More)
