CaMKII comprises of multiple isoforms that are derived from four closely related gene products; alpha, beta, gamma and delta, that have distinct but overlapping expression patterns.

Human anti CaMK II Inhibitor alpha antibody, clone AbD06603 detects mouse calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II alpha (CaMK II alpha), a serine/threonine kinase that is activated by calcium ions (Ca2+) and the Ca2+/calmodulin complex (CaM). CaMK II is expressed in glutamatergic excitatory neurones and constitutes the major postsynaptic density protein. It is important in the regulation of synaptic transmission, with possible roles in learning and memory.

The peptide sequence used to generate this antibody is identical to rat CAMK II alpha.
