Sample Data :Western blot using Anti-CAMK2 (1:1,500) shows detection of a band ~54 kDa corresponding to human alpha CaM Kinase II Specific reactivity with this band is blocked when the antibody is pre-incubated with the immunizing peptide (lane 2).
Scientific Background :CaM Kinase II (also known as CAMK2 and calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type II alpha chain) is a prominent kinase in the central nervous system that may function in the long-term potentiation of neurotransmitter release. CaM Kinase II autophosphorylates itself at Thr-286 which allows the kinase to switch from a calmodulin-dependent to a calmodulin-independent state. CaM Kinase II is composed of four different chains: alpha, beta, gamma, and delta. The different isoforms assemble into homo- or heteromultimeric holoenzymes composed of 8 to 12 subunits. This kinase is expressed in brain tissue. Alternative splicing occurs for this gene product.
