Protein–protein interactions contribute to the spatial and temporal resolution of many signal transduction cascades. Here, we discuss recent advances in our understanding of phosphatase-targeting subunits, kinase-anchoring proteins and the multiprotein signalling networks that they assemble. 
A-kinase anchoring proteins take shape.
A-kinase anchoring proteins (AKAPs) are signaling scaffolds that contribute to various aspects of cAMP signaling. They do this by tethering protein kinase-A to specific subcellular sites, therebyExpand
AKAP-Lbc nucleates a protein kinase D activation scaffold.
TLDR
Using a combination of biochemical, enzymatic, and immunofluorescence techniques, it is shown that the anchoring protein contributes to PKD activation in two ways: it recruits an upstream kinase PKCeta and coordinates PKA phosphorylation events that release activated protein kinase D. Expand

Compartmentalisation of phosphodiesterases and protein kinase A: opposites attract
TLDR
Compartmentalisation of PDEs not only provides an elegant means to control PKA activation by monitoring the local cAMP flux, but also serves to concentrate and segregate the action of these important regulatory enzymes. Expand
