AKAP12

(redirected from Gravin)

AKAP12

A gene on chromosome 6q24-q25 that encodes a member of the structurally diverse A-kinase anchor protein (AKAP) family, which binds to the regulatory subunits (RI/RII) of protein kinase A (PKA), confining PKA to discrete locations within the cell based on different targeting motifs. AKAP12 is expressed in endothelial cells, fibroblasts and osteosarcoma cells, associates with protein kinases A and C and phosphatase, and serves as a scaffold protein in signal transduction.

Molecular pathology
AKAP12 antibodies may be produced in myasthenia gravis.

On this point we agree with the definition of suffering given by Chapman and Gravin (1993): an 'emotional, cognitive, complex and negative condition characterized by the person's feelings on finding his or her integrity threatened, by a feeling of powerlessness to face this threat, and by the exhaustion of those individual and psychosocial resources that would allow him or her to cope with the threat'.
