Calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type II subunit alpha; CaM-kinase II (CAMK2) is a prominent kinase in the central nervous system that may function in long-term potentiation and neurotransmitter release. Member of the NMDAR signaling complex in excitatory synapses it may regulate NMDAR-dependent potentiation of the AMPAR and synaptic plasticity (By similarity). Phosphorylates transcription factor FOXO3 on 'Ser-298'. Activates FOXO3 transcriptional activity (By similarity); Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. CaMK subfamily.
Synonyms: CAMK2A, CAMK2Ap, hCAMK2A, A8K161, CAMK2A-001 ...
