Gene: Akap8 (A-kinase anchoring protein 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Akap8
Name: A-kinase anchoring protein 8
CRRD ID: 620832
Description: Exhibits double-stranded DNA binding activity; protein kinase A regulatory subunit binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to lipid; negative regulation of tumor necrosis factor production; and regulation of histone modification. Localizes to Golgi apparatus; mitochondrion; and nuclear matrix. Orthologous to human AKAP8 (A-kinase anchoring protein 8); PARTICIPATES IN protein kinase A (PKA) signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,4-dibromophenyl 2,4,5-tribromophenyl ether; 2,4-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: A kinase (PRKA) anchor protein 8; A kinase anchor protein 8; A-kinase anchor protein 8; A-kinase anchor protein 95 kDa; AKAP 95; AKAP-8; Akap95
