Gene: Camk2b (calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II, beta) Mus musculus
Symbol: Camk2b
Name: calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II, beta
Description: Exhibits calmodulin-dependent protein kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including activation of meiosis involved in egg activation; modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; and protein phosphorylation. Localizes to cytosol; postsynaptic density; and spindle midzone. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant mental retardation 54. Orthologous to human CAMK2B (calcium/calmodulin dependent protein kinase II beta); PARTICIPATES IN calcium/calmodulin dependent kinase 2 signaling pathway; p38 MAPK signaling pathway; type II interferon signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II, delta; calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type II subunit beta; caM kinase II subunit beta; CaMK II; caMK-II subunit beta; Camk2d; CaMKII; MGC90738
