Activation of CaMKK (R-HSA-442749) [Homo sapiens]


CaMKK is fully activated upon binding Ca2+/Calmodulin after intracellular Ca2+ levels increase. Once CaMKK binds Ca2+/Calmodulin it autophosphorylates, resulting in activation. CaMKK is negatively regulated by phosphorylation of S74 and T108 by PKA. Once activated CaMKK phosphorylates CaMKIV in a Ca2+/Calmodulin dependent manner.
