A kinase-anchoring proteins AKAP-5 and AKAP-12 calmodulin (CaM)-binding motif profile


The A kinase-anchoring proteins AKAP-5 and AKAP-12 (Gravin) bind calmodulin (CaM), a Ca(2+)-sensing protein that is expressed in all eukaryotic cells and mediates many essential processes driven by Ca(2+), including long-term changes in synaptic connections in the brain, apoptosis, and immune responses. The AKAP CaM-binding motif contains hydrophobic amino acids in a 1-4-7-8 pattern within an helix (see <PDB:5NIN>) [1].

The profile we developed covers the entire AKAP CaM-binding motif.
