Subcellular targeting of the cAMP-dependent protein kinase is achieved, in part, through association with A-kinase anchoring proteins (AKAPs). Recent evidence suggests that specific AKAPs direct the kinase to submembrane sites to facilitate phosphorylation and modulation of a variety of ion channels. A new membrane-anchored AKAP targets cAMP-dependent protein kinase to calcium channels and enhances their regulation in multiple cell types.
