This antibody is predicted to react with mouse based on sequence homology.
Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is brain tissue.
CaM kinase IV (CaMKIV), in a calcium and calmodulin dependent manner, is implicated in phosphorylating numerous transcription factors including the CCAAT enhancer binding protein (C/EBP), serum response factor (SRF), and cyclic AMP response element binding protein (CBP). The nuclear localization of this protein is consistent with its role in mediating calcium-dependent gene expression. CaMKIV is particularly abundant in testis, T-cells, and neurons but is also found in other tissues to varying degrees. In neurons, CaMKIV is thought to play an important role in synaptic plasticity via its gene regulatory effects. In T-cells, this protein plays an important role in calcium signaling which could affect the transcription regulatory protein, nuclear factor of activated T-cells (NFAT). CaMKIV is encoded, along with calspermin, by the CaMKIV gene. It has been found that, in testes, CaMKIV is expressed in germ cells and found to be associated with chromatin. The association of CaMKIV with chromatin suggests a potential role in chromatin remodeling during nuclear condensation in spermatids.
