  • FunctionAnchoring protein that mediates the subcellular compartmentation of protein kinase A (PKA) and protein kinase C (PKC).
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in endothelial cells, cultured fibroblasts and osteosarcoma, but not in platelets, leukocytes, monocytic cell lines or peripherical blood cells.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 3 AKAP domains.
  • DomainPolybasic regions located between residues 266 and 557 are involved in binding PKC.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cell cortex. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. May be part of the cortical cytoskeleton.
