CAMKV(CaM kinase-like vesicle-associated protein) is also named as 1G5,VACAMKL and belongs to the CAMK Ser/Thr protein kinase family. The CAMKV protein, which accumulates predominantly during postnatal development, binds to calmodulin in the presence of calcium. It is detected only in the CNS, is absent from cerebellum, but is detected in most other brain regions, especially regions of the cortex. The protein is predominantly detected in association with the plasma membrane of soma and in neurites, both axons and dendrites, and is frequently observed in active zones, usually associated with vesicle-like structures. Its sequence suggests that lG5 may be membrane associated(PMID:8283228).
