The type II cAMP-dependent protein kinase (PKA) is localized in certain cellular compartments through association with specific A-kinase anchoring proteins (AKAPs). A variety of blotting and electrophoresis techniques have been developed to study the protein-protein interactions that occur between the regulatory (R) subunit of PKA and AKAPs. These methods have also been used for a variety of purposes such as detecting calmodulin-binding proteins, comparing wild-type- and mutant-form binding affinities and estimating the molecular weight of multiprotein complexes.
