Our CamKII thr286 antibody works great in ICC.
Human astrocytes (1×106 cells/ml) were cultured for 24h without treatment or with METH (10 μM), clade B gp120 (50 ng/ml), or clade C gp120 (50 ng/ml) alone or METH in combination with clade B or C gp120. After incubation, the cells were fixed, permeabilized, and stained for phospho-CaMK II (green) or GFPA (red) and DAPI (blue). Image courtesy of Samikkannu T., et al.

Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaM Kinase II) is a multi-functional calcium and calmodulin-dependent protein kinase that transduces Ca2+ signals to several target proteins, including ion channels and transcription activators. 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 which is required for various cellular functions including long-term potentiation (LTP) and spatial learning (Meng et al., 2003; Picciotto et al., 1993; Geis et al., 1998).
