Datasheet Extract

Synthetic phosphopeptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding the phosphorylated-Thr286 found in rat brain CaM Kinase II. Identical to human, mouse and Xenopus sequences over these residues.
Property pThr286
Background Calcium/calmodulin kinase II (CaM Kinase II, CaMKII) is a multi-functional calcium and calmodulin-dependent serine/threonine protein kinase that mediates cellular responses to second messengers. Phosphorylation of Thr286 produces an autonomously active form of CaM Kinase II. CaMKII is an enzyme which is activated by increases in intracellular Ca2+ ion con-centration and it has been proposed to be pivotal in regulating synaptic strength and maturation of synapses during development (5). This process is thought to be critical in memory and learning and in establishing the specificity of synaptic connections. There are over two dozen alternative splice variants of CaMKII which are encoded by four genes, a, b, g, and d with apparent molecular masses of 50-60 kDa (2). CaMKII is widely distributed in many tissues, but is highly expressed in brain (3). Several studies demonstrate that CaMKII is a multifunctional enzyme which modulates the synaptic strength by binding to a subunit of NMDA receptors and promoting the phosphorylation of this NMDA receptor subunit (4). CaMKII also regulates DLG localization at synapses by co-localization with DLG in the same protein complex (4).
