Protein kinase A (PKA) is an enzyme that modulates the function of other proteins and thus is involved in many processes responsible for cellular regulation. This volume follows the discovery of the first human genetic disorder that is caused by mutations of one of the subunits of the PKA system. It brings together clinical and basic scientists for a new look at the enzyme and its involvement in human disease.
