This antibody is predicted to react with canine and rat based on sequence homology.
CAMK2A (CaMKII alpha) is a serine/threonine kinase that regulates a number of cellular functions including neuronal processes, gene expression, carbohydrate metabolism, cytoskeletal function, and calcium homeostatsis. Autophosphorylation of threonine 286 in the presence of Ca2+ and calmodulin activates CAMK2A with the ability to switch from calmodulin-dependent to a calmodulin independent activity. CaMKII is an ubiquitously expressed serine/threonine protein kinase that is activated by Ca2+/calmodulin (CaM) binding and autophosphorylation and has been implicated in regulation of the cell cycle and transcription. It is involved in dendritic spine and synapse formation, neuronal plasticity and regulation of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ transport in skeletal muscle. In neurons, plays an essential structural role in the reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton during plasticity by binding and bundling actin filaments in a kinase-independent manner.
