Abstract In response to injury or stress, the adult heart undergoes maladaptive changes, collectively defined as pathological cardiac remodeling. Here, we focus on the role of A-kinase anchoring proteins (AKAPs) in 3 main areas associated with cardiac remodeling and the progression of heart failure: excitation-contraction coupling, sarcomeric regulation, and induction of pathological hypertrophy. AKAPs are a diverse family of scaffold proteins that form multiprotein complexes, integrating cAMP signaling with protein kinases, phosphatases, and other effector proteins. Many AKAPs have been characterized in the heart, where they play a critical role in modulating cardiac function.
