Background CAMK4 belongs to the serine/threonine protein kinase family and Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase subfamily. This enzyme is a multifunctional serine/threonine protein kinase with limited tissue distribution. Sikela et al. identified that brain CaM kinase IV (CAMK4) appeared to be restricted to brain in the rat, interestingly, it was not detected in the brain of the newborn, but became detectable within a few days after birth. They also raised the possibility that a defect in Camk4 may be responsible for 1 of the mutant phenotypes in the centromeric region near 2 mutations, which known to affect neurologic function and fertility (1). Wei et al. found Camk4-labeled neurons in the hippocampus, amygdala, anterior cingulate cortex, somatosensory cortex, and insular cortex (2). Kang et al. generated transgenic mice in which the expression of a dominant-negative form of Camk4 was restricted to the postnatal forebrain. In these transgenic mice, activity-induced Creb phosphorylation and Fos expression were significantly attenuated. The results indicated that neural activity-dependent CAMK4 signaling in the neuronal nucleus plays an important role in the consolidation/retention of hippocampus-dependent long-term memory (3). Wu et al. generated transgenic mice that selectively express in skeletal muscle a constitutively active form of CAMK4 and concluded that a calcium-regulated signaling pathway controls mitochondrial biogenesis in mammalian cells (4). Wei et al. studied pain and fear memory in Camk4-null mice and concluded that Camk4 is crucial in the trapping of Ca2(+)/calmodulin complexes in neuronal nuclei and in Creb phosphorylation and activation (5).
