  • Function
    Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase belonging to a proposed calcium-triggered signaling cascade. May be involved in transcriptional regulation. May be involved in regulation of microtubule dynamics. In vitro, phosphorylates CREB1, CREBBP, PRM2, MEF2A, MEF2D and STMN1/OP18. May be involved in spermatogenesis. May play a role in the consolidation/retention of hippocampus-dependent long-term memory.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in epithelial ovarian cancer tissue.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. CaMK subfamily.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    Autophosphorylated and phosphorylated by CAMKK1 and CAMKK2 (By similarity). Dephosphorylated by serine/threonine protein phosphatase 2A, probably on Thr-200.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Substantial localization in certain neuronal nuclei. In spermatids associated with chromatin and nuclear matrix.

Anti-CAMKIV antibody [EP2565AY] images

  • ab68218 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed for 10 minutes at room temperature and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1hour at room temperature to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab68218 at 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) preadsorbed (ab150081) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.
