A-kinase anchoring proteins (AKAPs) are a family of proteins that provide spatiotemporal resolution of protein kinase A (PKA) phosphorylation. In the myocardium, PKA and AKAP18γ/δ are found in complex with sarcoendoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase 2 (SERCA2) and phospholamban (PLB). This macromolecular complex provides a means by which anchored PKA can dynamically regulate cytoplasmic Ca(2+) release and re-uptake. For this reason, AKAP18γ/δ presents an interesting drug target with therapeutic… Expand
Single nucleotide polymorphisms alter kinase anchoring and the subcellular targeting of A-kinase anchoring proteins
Enzyme-mediated proximity-proteomics reveal that compartment-selective variants of AKAP18 associate with distinct binding partners, and naturally occurring PKA-anchoring-defective AKAP variants not only perturb dissemination of local second-messenger responses, but also may influence the intracellular distribution of certainAKAP18 isoforms.

Usb1 controls U6 snRNP assembly through evolutionarily divergent cyclic phosphodiesterase activities
Structures of the U6 RNA processing enzyme Usb1 from yeast and a substrate analog bound complex from humans are reported and a model for U6 snRNP assembly is proposed that explains how evolutionarily divergent and seemingly antagonistic proteins cooperate to protect and chaperone the nascent snRNA during its journey to the spliceosome.

AKAP18 contains a phosphoesterase domain that binds AMP.
This data generate two functional hypotheses for the AKAP18 central domain, which may act as a phosphoesterase, although it did not identify a substrate, or as an AMP sensor with the potential to couple intracellular AMP levels to PKA signalling events. Expand
Intrinsic disorder within an AKAP-protein kinase A complex guides local substrate phosphorylation
It is proposed that the dynamic movement of kinase sub-structures, in concert with the static AKAP-regulatory subunit interface, generates a solid-state signaling microenvironment for substrate phosphorylation. Expand
Myelin 2′,3′-Cyclic Nucleotide 3′-Phosphodiesterase: Active-Site Ligand Binding and Molecular Conformation
A detailed picture of the CNPase active site during its catalytic cycle is provided, and a specific function for the previously uncharacterized N-terminal domain is suggested. Expand
Interaction of the regulatory subunit (RII) of cAMP-dependent protein kinase with RII-anchoring proteins occurs through an amphipathic helix binding motif.
Computer-aided analysis of secondary structure, performed on four RII-anchoring protein sequences, suggests that anchoring proteins interact with RII alpha via an amphipathic helix binding motif. Expand
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
Crystallographic Analysis of the Reaction Cycle of 2′,3′-Cyclic Nucleotide 3′-Phosphodiesterase, a Unique Member of the 2H Phosphoesterase Family
A comprehensive X-ray crystallographic study of mouse 2′,3′-cyclic nucleotide 3′-phosphodiesterase (CNPase), a membrane-associated enzyme present at high levels in the tetrapod myelin sheath, provides detailed information on the CNPase reaction mechanism, including substrate binding mode and coordination of the nucleophilic water molecule.

AKAP complex regulates Ca2+ re‐uptake into heart sarcoplasmic reticulum
This work has identified a supramolecular complex consisting of the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+‐ATPase, its negative regulator phospholamban, the A‐kinase anchoring protein AKAP 18δ and PKA, and shows that AKAP18δ acts as a scaffold that coordinates PKA phosphorylation of PLN and the adrenergic effect on Ca2- re‐uptake.

Localized effects of cAMP mediated by distinct routes of protein kinase A.
Targeting of PKA and integration of a wide repertoire of proteins involved in signal transduction into complex signal networks further increase the specificity required for the precise regulation of numerous cellular and physiological processes. Expand
Matthews coefficient probabilities: Improved estimates for unit cell contents of proteins, DNA, and protein–nucleic acid complex crystals
An improved estimator for the probabilities of the number of molecules in the crystallographic asymmetric unit has been implemented, using resolution as additional information. Expand
Discrete Microdomains with High Concentration of cAMP in Stimulated Rat Neonatal Cardiac Myocytes
In neonatal rat cardiac myocytes, β-adrenergic stimulation generates multiple microdomains with increased concentration of cAMP in correspondence with the region of the transverse tubule/junctional sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane, and such gradients specifically activate a subset of protein kinase A molecules anchored in proximity to the T tubule.
