Abstract

Cyclic AMP–protein kinase A (PKA) signaling is important for the growth and differentiation of . Immunofluorescence suggests that PKA can associate with the plasma membrane of trypomastigotes. We found that the PKA regulatory subunit interacts with several P-type ATPases. These P-type ATPases may play a role in anchoring PKA to the plasma membrane in
