Background: CaM Kinase II alpha
Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type II alpha (CaMKII alpha ) belongs to a family of multifunctional serine/threonine kinases activated in response to increases in intracellular calcium. There are 4 CaMKII isozymes, alpha, beta, gamma, and δ, and each can yield several isoforms through alternative splicing. CaMKII isoforms assemble into homo- or heteromultimeric holoenzymes composed of 8 to 12 subunits. CaMKII alpha is predominantly expressed in the brain. It shares 100% aa sequence identity between human, mouse, and rat within aa 144‑262 of isoform 1.
