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

    Margaret Stratton et al.
    Activation of CaMKII holoenzymes triggers the exchange of subunits with other holoenzymes, including unactivated ones, enabling the calcium-independent phosphorylation and activation of new subunits.

    Subunit exchange enhances information retention by CaMKII in dendritic spines

    Dilawar Singh, Upinder Singh Bhalla
    Due to subunit-exchange, CaMKII can store information at diverse time-scales and might play a central role in the memory maintenance.

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

    Deepti Karandur et al.
    Activation and autophosphorylation of CaMKII releases the regulatory segment, which can then bind to and destabilize the hub assembly by trapping large fluctuations in the hub architecture.

    Feeding state-dependent regulation of developmental plasticity via CaMKI and neuroendocrine signaling

    Scott J Neal et al.
    CaMKI and neuroendocrine signaling integrate information about food status to regulate a developmental decision in C. elegans.

    A homozygous loss-of-function CAMK2A mutation causes growth delay, frequent seizures and severe intellectual disability

    Poh Hui Chia et al.
    A biallelic missense mutation in the highly conserved, neuron-specific kinase CAMK2A abrogates holoenzyme assembly and causes a new inherited neurodevelopmental disease.

    CAMKII and Calcineurin regulate the lifespan of Caenorhabditis elegans through the FOXO transcription factor DAF-16

    Li Tao et al.
    Longevity in C. elegans is influenced not only by insulin/IGF-1 signalling, but also by CAMKII and calcineurin, acting on the same target, the transcription factor DAF-16.

    Flexible linkers in CaMKII control the balance between activating and inhibitory autophosphorylation

    Moitrayee Bhattacharyya et al.
    Differences in the flexible linkers connecting the kinase domain to an oligomeric hub modulate CaMKII activity by changing the balance between activating and inhibitory autophosphorylation.

    Molecular mechanism of activation-triggered subunit exchange in Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II

    Moitrayee Bhattacharyya et al.
    Closed-ring and open-spiral assembly of the multi-subunit neuronal kinase CaMKII suggest a mechanism for how active subunits shuttle between individual assemblies, propagating stimulatory signals.

    Optogenetic dissection of descending behavioral control in Drosophila

    Jessica Cande et al.
    Optogenetically activated individual descending neurons in Drosophila melanogaster drive varied stereotyped motor patterns that are often influenced by the animal's initial behavioral state.

    A molecular mechanism underlying gustatory memory trace for an association in the insular cortex

    Chinnakkaruppan Adaikkan, Kobi Rosenblum
    The role of CaMKII-GluA1 in the cortex in maintaining a given taste memory trace for an aversive association has been elucidated.
