3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
Purification Purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.

Alternative Name CaM Kinase II
Background Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaM kinase II) is a multifunctional Ser/Thr kinase that regulates a number of cellular functions in response to increased intracellular Ca2+. CaM kinase II is widely distributed, but is predominantly expressed in brain. It is involved in the regulation of neuronal functions such as neurotransmitter synthesis, neurotransmitter release, long-term potentiation, and formation of spatial learning. Neuronal CaM kinase II contains heteromers of two major subunits, alpha and beta, at a ratio of 2:1 and homomers of alpha subunits. Each subunit has N-terminal ATP-binding and catalytic/regulatory domains and a C-terminal association domain. The regulatory domain consists of the autoinhibitory and calmodulin-binding sites. Assembly of the association domains of multiple subunits positions the regulatory domains for intersubunit autophosphorylation. After binding Ca2+/calmodulin, CaM kinase II undergoes rapid autophosphorylation of the alpha and beta subunits, which results in a substantial increase in its affinity for Ca2+/calmodulin.

anti-Calcium/calmodulin-Dependent Protein Kinase II alpha (CAMK2A) (AA 448-460) antibody (3) Immunofluorescence staining of SK-N-SH cells (Human neuroblastoma, ATCC HTB-11) (Second Panel). Cells were seeded in a collagen coated 384-well imaging plate at ~ 8,000 cells per well. After overnight incubation, cells were stained using the methanol fix/perm protocol and the mouse anti-CaM Kinase II antibody. The second step reagent used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse Ig (Invitrogen) (pseudo colored green). Cell nuclei were counter stained with Hoechst 33342 (pseudo colored blue). Images was taken either on a BD Pathway 855 or 435 Bioimager System with a 20x objective and merged using BD AttoVision™ software. This antibody also stains SH-SY5Y, C6, U87 and U373 cells using both the Triton X-100 and methanol fix/perm protocols.
