Calcium (Ca2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase kinase-2 (CaMKK2) comprises unique N- and C-terminal and a central catalytic domain and is expressed in the nervous system. It belongs to the CaMK family. The CaMKK2 gene is mapped to human chromosome 12q24.31.

All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.
The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Anti-CAMKK2 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in:
- western blotting
- immunofluorescence microscopy
Calcium (Ca2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase kinase-2 (CaMKK2) has calmodulin (CaM) binding sequence and serves as an upstream kinase for histone deacetylase Sirtuin 1 (Sirt1) and AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). It regulates axonal growth and mediates neuronal plasticity. Single nucleotide polymorphisms in the CaMKK2 gene are implicated in schizophrenia, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. Deletion of CaMKK2 is correlated to loss of long-term memory. Elevated expression of CaMKK2 is observed in gastric, breast and ovarian cancers.
Features and Benefits
Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.
Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
- IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
- Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide
