In this study we demonstrate that Drosophila calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) is capable of complex regulation by autophosphorylation of the three threonines within its regulatory domain. Specifically, we show that autophosphorylation of threonine-287 in Drosophila CaMKII is equivalent to phosphorylation of threonine-286 in rat alpha(More)
Assembly of K channel alpha subunits of the Shaker (Sh) family occurs in a subfamily specific manner. It has been suggested that subfamily specificity also applies in the association of beta subunits with Sh channels (Rhodes, K. J., Keilbaugh, S. A., Barrezueta, N. X., Lopez, K. L., and Trimmer, J. S. (1995) J. Neurosci. 15, 5360-5371; Sewing, S., Roeper,(More)
Drosophila calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II is alternatively spliced to generate multiple isoforms that vary only in a region between the calmodulin-binding domain and the association domain. This variation has been shown to modulate activation of the enzyme by calmodulin. In this study we examine the ability of seven of the Drosophila(More)
Telomerase Cajal body protein 1 (TCAB1) is a telom-erase holoenzyme, which is markedly enriched in Cajal bodies (CBs) and facilitates the recruitment of telomerase to CBs in the S phase of the cell cycle. This recruitment is dependent on TCAB1 binding to a telomerase RNA component. The majority of cancer cells are able to grow indefinitely due to telomerase(More)
