|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||47088 Da|
|Antigen Region||115-143 aa|
|Other Names||A-kinase anchor protein 5, AKAP-5, A-kinase anchor protein 79 kDa, AKAP 79, H21, cAMP-dependent protein kinase regulatory subunit II high affinity-binding protein, AKAP5, AKAP79|
|Target/Specificity||This AKAP5 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 115-143 amino acids from the Central region of human AKAP5.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||AKAP5 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May anchor the PKA protein to cytoskeletal and/or organelle-associated proteins, targeting the signal carried by cAMP to specific intracellular effectors. Association with to the beta2-adrenergic receptor (beta2-AR) not only regulates beta2-AR signaling pathway, but also the activation by PKA by switching off the beta2-AR signaling cascade.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Lipid-anchor. Note=Associates with lipid rafts|
|Tissue Location||Predominantly in the cerebral cortex and the postsynaptic densities of the forebrain, and to a lesser extent in adrenal medulla, lung and anterior pituitary|

The A-kinase anchor proteins (AKAPs) are a group of structurally diverse proteins, which have the common function of binding to the regulatory subunit of protein kinase A (PKA) and confining the holoenzyme to discrete locations within the cell. This gene encodes a member of the AKAP family. The encoded protein binds to the RII-beta regulatory subunit of PKA, and also to protein kinase C and the phosphatase calcineurin. It is predominantly expressed in cerebral cortex and may anchor the PKA protein at postsynaptic densities (PSD) and be involved in the regulation of postsynaptic events. It is also expressed in T lymphocytes and may function to inhibit interleukin-2 transcription by disrupting calcineurin-dependent dephosphorylation of NFAT.
