AbstractWestern blot analysis of 100000g supernatant of rat retina using a polyclonal anti-Ca2+/ calmodulin-dependent protein kinase IV (CaM-kinase IV) antibody revealed an immunoreactive mass of 35 kDa, termed reticalmin. Lower amount of a isoform of CaM-kinase IV was also expressed in rat retina. Reticalmin did not react with anti-CaM-kinase IV C-terminal peptide antibody which recognized a and β isoforms of CaM-kinase IV and calspermin. Immunohisto-chemically reticalmin was shown to be localized mainly in the outer segment of photo-receptor cells, and in dendrites of inner plexiform layers and may be in nuclei of ganglion cells and some inner nuclear layer cells.
