KIBRA is a WW domain-containing protein that can bind to protein kinase Czeta (PKCzeta). The SNP of the ninth intron of the KIBRA gene is associated with human episodic memory performance. Protein kinase Mzeta (PKMzeta), a brain-specific variant of PKCzeta, plays important roles in memory formation. Here we examined the interaction of KIBRA and PKMzeta in the adult mouse brain. Immunoprecipitation using newly-raised anti-KIBRA antibody revealed the interaction between KIBRA and PKMzeta in the… CONTINUE READING
