Scientific Background:PKA (Protein Kinase A), also known as cAMP-dependent protein kinase, phosphorylates serine or threonine residues in target protein in response to elevated levels of cAMP. Inactive PKA exists as a tetrameric protein composed of two regulatory (R) subunits and two catalytic (C) subunits. Activation occurs when two cAMP molecules bind to each R subunit which causes a conformational change that releases the active C subunits.
UniProt ID:P17612 (Cα subunit), P22694 (Cβ subunit), P22162 (Cγ subunit), P10644 (RIα subunit), P31321 (RIβ subunit), P13861 (RIIα subunit), P31323 (RIIβ subunit)
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
Compatibility:This product is compatible with the Absorbance 96 Plate Reader.
