Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/5000. Predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa. Staining of CaM Kinase IIa in immunoblotting is specifically inhibited with CaM Kinase IIa immunizing peptide.
IP Use at an assay dependent dilution. 5 µg using 10 µg of a synaptosomal fraction of rat brain.


  • FunctionCaM-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 similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. CaMK subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Cellular localizationCell junction > synapse > presynaptic cell membrane. Cell junction > synapse. Postsynaptic lipid rafts.
