MA5-17038 targets CAMK4 in indirect ELISA, FACS, ICC, IHC, IF and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-17038 immunogen is purified recombinant fragment of human CAMK4 (amino acids: 35-292 ) expressed in E. Coli.
MA5-17038 detects CAMK4 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 58kDa.
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.
