View All Available Formats & Editions


Proceedings of a September 2001 conference held at the Warren Magnuson National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, exploring the many aspects of protein kinase A (PKA) function and its role in human disease. Eighteen contributions are arranged in a section on signaling, model systems, pathophysiology, and genetics, and a section on the interactions of other diseases, signaling molecules, and pathways with PKA. A sampling of topics: dissecting the circuitry of PKA and cAMP signaling in cancer genesis, regulatory subunits of PKA and breast cancer, deficient PKA in systemic lupus erythematosus, cyclic AMP and the reverse transformation reaction, the role of PTEN in epithelial thyroid carcinogenesis, and signaling pathways in adrenocortical cancer.
