Calmodulin-dependent Protein Kinase II (CaMKII)
recombinant NEBU 30 65 Heat

  • Catalog # P6060 was discontinued on January 01, 2017
  • Product Information
    Calmodulin-Dependent Protein Kinase II (CaMKII) is a serine/threonine kinase. It is a Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent, truncated monomer (1-325 amino acid residues) of the α subunit. Autophosphorylation of threonine 286 in the presence of Ca2+ and calmodulin activates CaMKII and produces substantial Ca2+/calmodulin-independent activity (1,2). 


    • Protein serine/threonine kinase
    • Rat, recombinant (S. frugiperda Sf9)

    Product Source

    Isolated from Spodoptera frugiperda (Sf9) cells infected with recombinant baculovirus carrying the rat truncated CaMKII (kindly provided by Dr. H. Shulman).

    Recognition Determinant

    The minimal recognition motif for phosphorylation by CaMKII is RXXS/T. A more recent report suggests the presence of positive determinants at the -5, -2 and +1 positions in addition to the -3R. Thus, CaMKII preferentially phosphorylates substrates with motifs: HydXRXXS/T and HydXRNBXS/T, respectively, where Hyd represents a hydrophobic, X any, and NB a non-basic amino acid residue (3).
