PA1-26727 detects CaMKII alpha (phospho T286) from human samples. PA1-26727 is expected to cross react with mouse (100% conserved), and rat (100% conserved) due to sequence homology.
PA1-26727 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures.
The PA1-26727 immunogen is a synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to a portion of human CaM Kinase II alpha containing threonine 286.
Store at 4°C for short term storage. For long term storage store at -20°C or below. Avoid Freeze/Thaw Cycles.
Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II alhpa (CaM Kinase II alhpa) is a 50 kDa member of CaM Kinase II family of serine-theonine kinase that transduce Ca2+ signals to several target proteins, including ion channels and transcription activators. CaM Kinase II is predominantly expressed in two isoforms in the brain: alpha and beta. CaM Kinase II playa an important role in neuronal plasticity and memory formation, and exerts both calcium-calmodulim-dependent and -independent activities. Autophosphorylation of CaM Kinase II alpha on threonine 286 allows the kinase to switch from calmodulin-dependent to a calmodulin-independent state, and is required for varios cellular functions including hippocampal long-term potential (LPT), special learning,, and hippocampus-dependent memory.
