Cyclase-associated protein (CAP) is a conserved two-domain protein that helps to activate the catalytic activity of adenylyl cyclase in
the cyclase-bound state through interaction with Ras, which binds to the cyclase in a different region. With its other domain, CAP can
bind monomeric actin and therefore also carries a cytoskeletal function. The protein is thus involved in Ras/cAMP-dependent signal
transduction and most likely serves as an adapter protein translocating the adenylyl cyclase complex to the actin cytoskeleton [1550959, 7962207].
Structurally, CAP is a protein of 474 to 551 residues. The N- and C-terminal domains of CAP are connected by an intermediate section which contains a proline-rich region. In the yeast protein, this domain has
been further divided into the P1 and P2 regions. While the P1 region is constituted by a 14 amino-acid sequence of unknown function, the P2 region exhibits a
consensus SH3-binding motif (PXXP) and is necessary to target CAP to cortical actin patches. Dictyostelium CAP is a phosphatidylinositol 4,5-biphosphate (PIP2) regulated G-actin sequestering protein, which is present in the cytosol and shows
enrichment at plasma-membrane regions. The cortical translocation is mediated by the N-terminal domain .
