Target

  • Function
    CaM-kinase II (CAMK2) is a prominent kinase in the central nervous system that may function in long-term potentiation and neurotransmitter release. Member of the NMDAR signaling complex in excitatory synapses it may regulate NMDAR-dependent potentiation of the AMPAR and synaptic plasticity.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. CaMK subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell junction > synapse > presynaptic cell membrane. Cell junction > synapse. Postsynaptic lipid rafts.

Images

  • IHC image of CaMKII alpha staining in rat brain formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab103840, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
