- Official Gene Full Name:
- Protein kinase, cAMP dependent, catalytic, alpha
- NCBI Gene Id:
- Alias Symbols:
- C alpha, cAMP-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit alpha, Cs, PKA, Pkaca, PKA C-alpha, PKCD
- Description of Target:
- This gene encodes a member of the serine/threonine protein kinase family. The holoenzyme, protein kinase A (also known as cyclic-AMP dependent protein kinase), mediates cellular response to changes in cyclic-AMP levels. This gene encodes the alpha catalytic subunit of protein kinase A. Protein kinase A-mediated signaling is transduced via phosphorylation of target proteins, and is important for many cellular functions, including mammalian sperm maturation and motility. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. A pseudogene of this gene has been defined on the X chromosome.

- Kit Principle:
- Aviva Systems Biology Prkaca ELISA Kit (Mouse) (OKEH04737) is based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immuno-sorbent assay technology. An antibody specific for Prkaca has been pre-coated onto a 96-wellplate (12 x 8 Well Strips) and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells, incubated and removed. A biotinylated detector antibody specific for Prkaca is added, incubated and followed by washing. Avidin-Peroxidase Conjugate is then added, incubated and unbound conjugate is washed away. An enzymatic reaction is produced through the addition of TMB substrate which is catalyzed by HRP to generating a blue color product that changes yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration read by absorbance at 450 nm is quantitatively proportional to the amount of sample Prkaca captured in well.
