CAMK2gamma is a member of the CAMKII family which are ubiquitous serine/threonine protein kinases that have been implicated in diverse effects of hormones and neurotransmitters. CAMK2gamma has six alternatively spliced variants that encode six different isoforms. Some of these variants have been identified in human tumors (1). Transgenic mice expressing a partially calcium-independent mutant form of CAMK2gamma showed 1.5- to 2-fold increase in the thymus of these mice, at least in part due to an increase in the life span of double-positive thymocytes (2). There was an increase in the number of T cells in the secondary lymphoid organs that had acquired an antigen-dependent memory phenotype.
