COVER This week's issue features a Research Article that demonstrates how the scaffold protein muscle A kinase–anchoring protein (mAKAP) regulates the stability of the transcription factor hypoxia-inducible factor 1α (HIF-1α) in a bidirectional manner. The image shows the perinuclear localization of mAKAP (in green) in neonatal rat ventricular myocytes, which were also stained for the cytoskeletal protein α-actinin (in red).
