Gene: Camk2b (calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II beta) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Camk2b
Name: calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II beta
Description: Exhibits calmodulin-dependent protein kinase activity; phospholipase binding activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to homocysteine; hippocampal neuron apoptotic process; and regulation of synapse organization. Localizes to several cellular components, including glutamatergic synapse; perikaryon; and postsynaptic density. 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 (S)-amphetamine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Ca++/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II beta subunit; Ca++/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II, beta subunit; calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase (CaM kinase) II beta; calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II beta subunit; calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II, beta; calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type II beta chain; calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type II subunit beta; caM kinase II subunit beta; caM-kinase II beta chain; caMK-II subunit beta; Ck2b
