Recent studies have demonstrated that Ca-2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase IV (CaM-kinase IV) can mediate Ca-2+-dependent regulation of gene expression through the phosphorylation of transcriptional activating proteins. We have previously identified and purified a 68-kDa rat brain CaM-kinase kinase that phosphorylates and increases total and Ca-2+-independent activities of CaM-kinase IV (Tokumitsu, H., Brickey, D. A., Gold, J., Hidaka, H., Sikela, J., and Soderling, T. R. (1994) J. Biol. Chem. 269, 28640-28647). Using a partial amino acid sequence of the purified brain kinase, a CaM-kinase kinase cDNA was cloned from a rat brain cDNA library. Northern blot analysis showed that CaM-kinase kinase mRNA (3.4 kilobases) was expressed in rat brain, thymus, and spleen. Sequence analyses revealed that the cDNA encoded a 505-amino acid protein, which contained consensus protein kinase motifs and was 30 - 40% homologous with members of the CaM-kinase family. Expression of the cDNA in COS-7 cells yielded an apparent 68-kDa CaM-binding protein, which catalyzed in vitro activation in the presence of Mg-2+/ATP and Ca-2+/ CaM of CaM-kinases I and IV but not of CaM-kinase II. Co-expression of CaM-kinase kinase with CaM-kinase IV gave a 14-fold enhancement of cAMP-response elementbinding protein-dependent gene expression compared with CaM-kinase IV alone. These results are consistent with the hypothesis that CaM-kinases I and IV are regulated through a unique signal transduction cascade involving CaM-kinase kinase.
