  • Function

    Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase belonging to a proposed calcium-triggered signaling cascade involved in a number of cellular processes. Isoform 1, isoform 2 and isoform 3 phosphorylate CAMK1 and CAMK4. Isoform 3 phosphorylates CAMK1D. Isoform 4, isoform 5 and isoform 6 lacking part of the calmodulin-binding domain are inactive. Seems to be involved in hippocampal activation of CREB1.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitously expressed with higher levels in the brain. Intermediate levels are detected in spleen, prostate, thyroid and leukocytes. The lowest level is in lung.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Domain

    The autoinhibitory domain overlaps with the calmodulin binding region and may be involved in intrasteric autoinhibition.
    The RP domain (arginine/proline-rich) is involved in the recognition of CAMKI and CAMK4 as substrates.

Thank you for contacting us.

I have performed a sequence alignment for LKB1 for Dictyostelium and for human (which is used to raise most of our antibodies.) Unfortunately there is only a total of 33% homology between the two proteins. I have contacted the lab and indeed all the immunogens of the anti-LKB1antibodies guaranteed to work in WB/IF in our catalogue have a 28-50% sequence homology with the Dictyostelium protein and therefore are not likely to work.

The amino acid sequence for LKB1 for Dictyostelium that I used can be found at http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q15831.fasta. Unfortunately, this is the predicted amino acid sequence for the species and has not been confirmed therefore, if your customer has the verified sequence of this protein, then I will be happy to repeat these alignments to verify the homology.

Regarding an anti-CAMKK antibody, I am not able to recommend a suitable one unless I have the Dictyostelium amino acid sequence for this protein. If your customer could send it, then again I will be happy to perform the sequence alignments.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for contacting us.

I have found the amino acid sequence for LKB1 for Dictyostelium which can be found at http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q15831.fasta

I have contacted the lab to see if any of our antibodies would be compatible for use in Dictyostelium.

I have not been able to find the sequence for CAMKK for Dictyostelium. Could you ask your customer to send it if they have it so that I may perform the sequence alignments?

I look forward to your reply.
