It also shows CaMKII is key in the formation of long-term memory.
Lastly, we observed higher expression of NR2B and CaMKII in PC12 cells treated with corticosterone than in the control group (P<0.01, n=8) (Figure 9).

Interestingly, a number of studies have indicated that CaMKII enhances mitochondrial dysfunction, ROS formation, and apoptosis [63], eventually causing cardiomyocyte death both following hyperglycemia [64, 65] and oxidative stress conditions [43, 45, 66].
They demonstrated that simvastatin causes an influx of calcium ions through the TRPV1-TRPA1 (transient receptor potential ankyrin 1) pathway, which then causes activation of CaMKII ([Ca.sup.2+]/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II).
Some of the mechanisms related to neuropathic pain involve CaMKII and PKC, which may be relevant to the pain of SCD.
