The CaMKII holoenzyme structure in activation-competent conformations

Biochemical and cellular FRET studies confirm that the extended state of CaMKIIα resolved by EM is the predominant form of the holoenzyme, even under molecular crowding conditions.

Breakage of the oligomeric CaMKII hub by the regulatory segment of the kinase

It is shown how the release of the regulatory segment by activation and phosphorylation could allow it to destabilize the hub, producing smaller CaMKII assemblies that can reassemble to form new holoenzymes.

Characterization of CaMKIIα holoenzyme stability

The stability of CaMKIIα is investigated using a combination of differential scanning calorimetry, X‐ray crystallography, and mass photometry to conclude that within the context of the holoenzyme structure, the kinase domain is stabilized, whereas the hub domain is destabilized.

Crystal Structure of the Ca2+/Calmodulin-dependent Protein Kinase Kinase in Complex with the Inhibitor STO-609*

The present structure provides a molecular basis for clarifying the known biochemical properties of CaMKKβ and for designing novel inhibitors targeting CaMkkβ and the related protein kinases.

Intersubunit capture of regulatory segments is a component of cooperative CaMKII activation

It is shown that activation of CaMKII by Ca2+–calmodulin is cooperative, with a Hill coefficient of ∼3.0, implying sequential kinase-domain activation beyond dimeric units, and points to the importance of kinetic dissection of the frequency-response mechanism in future experiments.

Activation-triggered subunit exchange between CaMKII holoenzymes facilitates the spread of kinase activity

It is suggested that the phosphorylated regulatory segment of CaMKII interacts with the central hub of the holoenzyme and weakens its integrity, thereby promoting exchange and having implications for an earlier idea that subunit exchange in CaMK II may have relevance for information storage resulting from brief coincident stimuli during neuronal signaling.

Structural Insights into the Regulation of Ca2+/Calmodulin-Dependent Protein Kinase II (CaMKII).

The intriguing finding that the Ca MKII holoenzyme can undergo activation-triggered subunit exchange, a process that has implications for the potentiation and perpetuation of CaMKII activity is discussed.



Structural Examination of Autoregulation of Multifunctional Calcium/Calmodulin-dependent Protein Kinase II*

The model explains why calmodulin must bind to the auto-inhibitory domain in order for Thr-286 in that domain to be phosphorylated and why introduction of phospho-Thr-286 produces the important Ca2+-independent state of the enzyme.

Mutational analysis of the autoinhibitory domain of calmodulin kinase II.

Structure-function of the multifunctional Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II.

The role of CaMKII in Ca2+ signal transduction is shaped by its autoregulation, isoenzymic type and subcellular localization, which is crucial for certain forms of learning and memory.

A Peptide Model for Calmodulin Trapping by Calcium/Calmodulin-dependent Protein Kinase II*

The results suggest a model in whichCaM-dependent autophosphorylation of CaM-kinase induces a conformational change in the region of the Ca M-binding domain which allows the formation of additional stabilizing interactions with CaM.

Substrate-directed Function of Calmodulin in Autophosphorylation of Ca2+/Calmodulin-dependent Protein Kinase II*

Heteromeric holoenzymes comprising distinct “kinase” and “substrate” subunits to test for kinase- and substrate-directed functions of calmodulin are engineered and it is shown that the obligate kinase subunits have aspartate residues substituted for threonine at positions 286, 305, and 306, making it constitutively active but unable to bind cal modulin.

The crystal structure of a phosphorylase kinase peptide substrate complex: kinase substrate recognition

The structure of a truncated form of the γ‐subunit of phosphorylase kinase (PHKγt) has been solved in a ternary complex with a non‐hydrolysable ATP analogue and a heptapeptide substrate related to both the natural substrate and to the optimal peptide substrate.
