Our Anti-CaM Kinase II (Thr286) rabbit polyclonal phosphospecific primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is produced in-house. It detects human, mouse, rabbit, and rat CaM Kinase II (Thr286) and is antigen affinity purified from pooled serum. It is great for use in WB, IHC.
Western blot of rat brain lysate showing specific immunolabeling of the ~50 kDa α- and the ~60 kDa β-CaM Kinase II phosphorylated at Thr286 in the first lane (-). Phosphospecificity is shown in the second lane (+) where the immunolabeling is completely eliminated by blot treatment with lambda phosphatase (λ-Ptase, 1200 units for 30 minutes).
Anti-CaM Kinase II (Thr286) Antibody
CaM Kinase II (Thr286)
Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaM Kinase II) is a multi-functional calcium and calmodulin-dependent protein kinase that mediates cellular responses to a wide variety of intercellular signals (Kennedy, 1998; Schulman and Hanson, 1993). CaM Kinase II has been shown to regulate diverse cellular functions including synaptic plasticity, neurotransmitter synthesis and release, gene expression, ion channel function, carbohydrate metabolism, cytoskeletal function, and Ca2+-homeostasis (Gleason et al., 2003; Soderling, 2000; Hudmon and Schulman, 2002). Phosphorylation of Thr-286 on the kinase produces an autonomously active form of CaM Kinase II (Meng et al., 2003; Picciotto et al., 1993). Autophosphorylation of Thr-305 inhibits the activity CaM Kinase II. Phosphorylation at this site appears to reduce the association of CaM Kinase II with the PSD and reduce LTP and learning (Elgersma et al., 2002).
Antigen Affinity Purified from Pooled Serum
Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Thr286 of rat CaMKII, conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).
Human, Mouse, Rabbit, Rat
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
Prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho and non-phosphopeptide affinity columns.
10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol.
