Immunogen Phosphopeptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding the phospho-Thr286 found in rat brain CaM Kinase II.
Isotype IgG
Specificity Specific for the ~50k Alpha-CaM Kinase II and the ~60k Beta-CaM Kinase II proteins phosphorylated at Thr286. Immunolabeling is blocked by the lambda-phosphatase treatment.
Cross-Reactivity (Details) Species reactivity (expected):Human, Mouse and Xenopus.
Species reactivity (tested):Rat.
Purification Sequential Chromatography on phospho- and dephosphopeptide affinity columns.
Alternative Name CAMK2A (CAMK2A Antibody Abstract)
Background Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaM Kinase II) is a multi-functional calcium and calmodulin-dependent protein kinase that mediates cellular responses to a wide variety of intercellular signals (Kennedy, 1998, Schulman and Hanson, 1993). CaM Kinase II has been shown to regulate diverse cellular functions including synaptic plasticity, neurotransmitter synthesis and release, gene expression, ion channel function, carbohydrate metabolism, cytoskeletal function, and Ca2+-homeostasis (Gleason et al., 2003, Soderling, 2000, Hudmon and Schulman, 2002). Phosphorylation of Thr286 on the kinase produces an autonomously active form of CaM Kinase II (Meng et al., 2003, Picciotto et al., 1993). Autophosphorylation of Thr305 inhibits the activity CaM Kinase II. Phosphorylation at this site appears to reduce the association of CaM Kinase II with the PSD and reduce LTP and learning (Elgersma et al., 2002).Synonyms: CAMK2A, CAMK2B, CAMKA, CaM kinase II subunit alpha, CaM kinase II subunit beta, CaM-kinase II alpha chain, CaM-kinase II beta chain, CaMK-II subunit alpha, CaMK-II subunit beta, Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type II, KIAA0968
