  BioCarta - Charting Pathways of Life
PKA is a tetramer composed of catalytic subunits and regulatory subunits that repress the catalytic units when they are bound together.
The PKA activation pathway is an example of a signal transduction cascade, in which tying several signaling events together amplifies the original signal in the cell.
One substrate of PKA is phosphorylase kinase, which is activated phosphorylation and is part of the signaling cascade that mobilizes glycogen into glucose to provide energy that fuels the response to epinephrine.

 pKa Introduction
The structure may be submitted as either a MOL file or SD file and it is not necessary for the structure to be in a three dimensional format or to be optimized to a minimum energy confirmation.
The negative log of the acid ionization constant (pKa) is defined as the ability of an ionizable group of an organic compound to donate a proton (H+) in an aqueous media.
The computed quantity is a measure of its apparent pKa, or macroscopic dissociation constant, at equilibrium, normally taken at 25°C. The pKa value of an organic compound arises from the ionization of either an acid or base, at a specific center in the structure.

 PKA
The inactive PKA holoenzyme is activated when cAMP binds to the regulatory subunits which induces the release of two active catalytic subunits.
AKAPs place PKA type II in proximity with neurotransmitter-activated adenylate cyclase, neurotransmitter receptors for desensitization, ion channels and substrates in the cytoskeleton such as microtubule-associated proteins.
The heatstable protein kinase inhibitor PKI is a key role player for the regulation of PKA activity and for localizing the catalytic subunit of PKA in the cell, also working as a nuclear scavenger.

 pKa calculations
The pKa value of a titratable group is a measure of the free energy difference between the neutral and charged state of the group.
We now define a quantity called the intrinsic pKa as the pKa that each residue would have if all other titratable groups in the protein were kept fixed in their neutral state.
The pKa values of the active site residues Asp 231, Glu 261 and Asp 328 are highly dependent of a number of other titratable groups that also must be "selected" in order for the pKa values of the active site groups to be accurate.

 Physiological ionization and pKa prediction
Although pKa prediction itself is an interesting challenge, the closely related problem of physiological ionization state determination is of greater immediate value to computational chemists.
Similarly, a pKa that is close to 7.3, implies that a significant fraction of the molecule may be either protonated or deprotonated, and analysis should be applied to both forms.
Unfortunately, the Achilles heel of Hammett and Taft based pKa prediction is the dependence upon large databases, both for the substituent constants and for the acid/base functional group under consideration.

 PKA
Recent results show that high PKA activity cannot counteract the phosphorylation of Fu that depends on the Hh signal but can be inhibited by Ptc, suggesting that Fu indeed acts downstream of Hh and Ptc (Therond, 1996).

The acid dissociation constant (pKa value) of an ionizable compound is defined as the pH value at which the dissociated and undissociated species are of equal concentration.
Experimental knowledge of the pKa value of a new chemical entity (NCE) provides a means to determine the extent of ionization at any solution pH value, and is highly beneficial for predicting compound absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) properties.
The pKa value also plays an important role in the development of drug delivery formulations.

 pKa Determination
Determination of the dissociation constant for a drug capable of ionization within a pH range of 1 to 10 is important since solubility, and consequently absorption, can be altered by orders of magnitude with changing pH.
The Henderson-Hasselbalch equation provides an estimate of the ionized and un-ionized drug concentration at a particular pH.
pKa of a compound is thus a measure of drug un-ionized at a certain pH
