Summaries for AKAP2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AKAP2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene binds to the regulatory subunit of protein kinase A and is found associated with the actin cytoskeleton. The encoded protein mediates signals carried by cAMP and may be involved in creating polarity in certain signaling processes. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]

GeneCards Summary for AKAP2 Gene

AKAP2 (A Kinase (PRKA) Anchor Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are G Protein Signaling Pathways and Signal transduction_PKA signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include enzyme binding. An important paralog of this gene is PALMD.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AKAP2 Gene

  • Binds to regulatory subunit (RII) of protein kinase A. May be involved in establishing polarity in signaling systems or in integrating PKA-RII isoforms with downstream effectors to capture, amplify and focus diffuse, trans-cellular signals carried by cAMP (By similarity).
