Human CaMKII alpha/CAMK2A Baculovirus-Insect Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human CaMKII alpha/CAMK2A overexpression lysate was created in Baculovirus-Insect Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of CaMKII alpha/CAMK2A protein (Cat: 10648-H09B) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the human CAMK2A isoform 2 (NP_741960.1) (Met 1-His 478) was fused with the GST tag at the N-terminus.
The recombinant human CAMK2A/GST chimera consists of 703 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 80.3 kDa. It migrates as an approximately 80 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human CaMKII alpha/CAMK2A Baculovirus-Insect Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube.
2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Stability & Storage
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Western Blot (WB) Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

CaMKII alpha/CAMK2A Background Information
Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase2A (CAMK2A) belongs to the serine/threonine protein kinase family and, together with other 28 different isoforms, belongs to the Ca2+/ calmodulin-dependent protein kinase subfamily. CaM kinase Ⅱ is thought to be an important mediator of learning and memory and is also necessary for Ca2+ homeostasis and reuptake in cardiomyocytes chloride transport in epithelia, positive T-cell selection, and CD8 T-cell activation. CAMKIIA is one of the major forms of CAMKII. It has been found to play a critical role in sustaining activation of CAMKII at the postsynaptic density. Studies have found that knockout mice without CAMKIIA demonstrate a low frequency of LTP. Additionally, these mice do not form persistent, stable place cells in the hippocampus.
