Do you mean Camkinase II or I? There are definitely studies connecting CamK II to the heart. If I remember correctly, from what I got out of it was that it affected the relaxation and contraction of the heart.

CamKinase II. I am curious because my 3 kiddos are being evaluated for heart issues and am wondering if an elevated CamKinase II can play a role.

Shedding Light On Heart's 'Fight Or Flight' Response To Stress

That pacing change happens in part because of how the enzyme calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaM kinase II) is called into action by the body's 'fight or flight' stress response, University of Iowa researchers have found.
