The type II cAMP-protein kinase (PKA) is a multifunctional kinase with a broad range of substrates. Specificity of PKA signaling is thought to be mediated by the compartmentalization of the kinase to specific sites within the cell. To maintain this specific localization, the R subunit (RII) of PKA interacts with specific RII-anchoring proteins. The family of RII-anchoring proteins has been designated A-kinase anchoring proteins (AKAP). AKAP 13, also known as Brx (breast cancer nuclear receptor-binding auxiliary protein), Lbc (lymphoid blast crisis oncogene), HA-3 or Ht31 (human thyroid-anchoring protein 31), functions as a cAMP-dependent scaffold anchor for PKA and also has Rho-GEF activity. It is known to regulate TLR2 signaling, NFkB activation, protein kinase D activation and participate in Actin stress fiber formation. Seven isoforms exist for AKAP 13 and, depending on the isoform, it localizes to the cytoplasm, nucleus or cell membrane.
