  • 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.
