AKAP6

AKAP6

A gene on chromosome 14q12 that encodes a member of the structurally diverse A-kinase anchor protein (AKAP) family, which binds to the regulatory subunit of protein kinase A (PKA), confining the enzyme to discrete locations within the cell. AKAP6 is highly expressed in certain regions of the brain and in cardiac and skeletal muscle; it localises to the sarcoplasmic reticulum and nuclear membrane, where it anchors PKA.

For men, DNAJB5, RAC3, EAPP, HDLBP, PRG2, PER1, PIK31, and SLA2 were selected for validation, whereas for women the gene list for validation included AKAP6, LIMK1, SIRT7, ARHPGAP4, ATG16L2, TPM3, 5-HT1B, and PYGO2.
AKAP6 (p = 0.02) and LIMK1 (p = 0.006) were significantly associated with [PM.sub.10] in women in the validation cohort, albeit with significantly lower expression instead of higher expression as in the discovery cohort.
(4) performance of gene set consisting of DNAJB5, RAC3, SLA2, HDLBP, PRG2, PER1, PIK3R1, and EAPP to dinstinguish between high and low [PM.sub.10] exposure in men (above 75th percentile corresponding to 24.5 [micro]g/[m.sup.3]) and low (< 24.5 [micro]g/[m.sup.3]) and (B) performance of gene set consisting of ARHGAP4, AKAP6, PYGO2, HTR1B, ATG16L2, SIRT7, TPM3 and LIMK1 in women to distinguish between high (above 75th percentile corresponding to: 25.7 Mg/m3) and low (< 25.7 Mg/m3) long-term residential [PM.sub.10] exposure.
