Gene Information

human ... AKAP1(8165)

General description

AKAP1 (A-kinase anchoring protein 1) is a member of the AKAP family of proteins that act as recruiters and aid in compartmentalization of PKA (protein kinase A) and other enzymes. It is a mitochondrial scaffold protein, which is composed of K-homology motifs. This gene is localized to human chromosome 17q22.


A kinase anchor protein 1, mitochondrial precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

AKAP1 (A-kinase anchoring protein 1) plays an essential role in the synthesis of non-coding and coding RNA, by directly binding to the RNA. It plays an essential role in steroidogenesis, by anchoring the STAR (steroidogenic acute regulatory) mRNA to mitochondria. Thus, it influences the synthesis of STAR protein and steroids. During G1 phase, this protein helps maintain the integrity of nucleus and hence, cell survival, by controlling PP1 (protein phosphatase1) activity at the nuclear envelope.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST71862.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

Microdeletions in chromosome 17q22, where the NOG gene resides, have been reported leading to the NOG-related symphalangism spectrum disorder (NOG-SSD), intellectual disability and other developmental abnormalities. In this study we reported a dominant Chinese Han family segregating with typical NOG-SSD...
