Sample Data :Western blot using Anti-CAMK4 (1:1,000) shows detection of a band ~52 kDa corresponding to CaM Kinase IV (arrowhead) in various preparations: lane 1 - rat brain lysate, lane 2 - Jurkat cell lysate. Specific reactivity is blocked in both lysates when antibody is preincubated with immunizing peptide (lanes 3 and 4 respectively). Approximately 35 µg of each lysate was separated by 4-20% SDS-PAGE and transferred onto nitrocellulose. CaM Kinase IV was similarly detected on lysates from mouse brain (not shown).

Sample Data :Anti-CAMK4 antibody was diluted 1:500 to detect CAMK4 in human brain cortex tissue. Tissue was formalin fixed and paraffin embedded. No pre-treatment of sample was required. The image shows the localization of antibody as the precipitated red signal, with a hematoxylin purple nuclear counter stain.

Scientific Background :CAMK4 is a multifunctional serine/threonine protein kinase and a member of Ca(2+)/calmodulin- dependent protein kinase family. CAMK4 is localized in neurons in the hippocampus, amygdala, anterior cingulate cortex, somatosensory cortex, and insular cortex (1). CAMK4 is involved in neural activity-dependent signaling in the neuronal nucleus and thought to plays an important role in the consolidation/retention of hippocampus-dependent long-term memory (2).
