The Protein Kinase C (PKC) family of homologous serine/threonine protein kinases is involved in a number of processes such as growth, differentiation, and cytokine secretion. At least eleven isozymes have been described. PKC consists of a single polypeptide chain containing four conserved regions (C) and five variable regions (V). The N-terminal half interacts with PKC activators Ca2+, phospholipid, diacylglycerol, or phorbol ester, while the C-terminal half contains the catalytic domain. The conventional PKC subfamily (α, β1, βII, and γ) is regulated by both Ca2+ and diacylglycerol. The PKC pathway represents a major signal transduction system that is activated following ligand-stimulation of transmembrane receptors by hormones, neurotransmitters, and growth factors. The phosphorylation of multiple sites in PKCs regulates their activity.

Western blot analysis of adult mouse brain tissue lysate. The blot was probed with mouse monoclonal anti-PKCδ (N-terminal region) at 1:125 (lane 1) and 1:500 (lane 2).

Immunocytochemical labeling of PKCδ in rat PC12 cells differentiated with NGF. The cells were labeled with mouse monoclonal PKCδ (N-terminal region) antibody, then detected using appropriate secondary antibody conjugated to Cy3.

Clone (M242) was generated from a recombinant human protein that included amino acids residues in the N-terminal region. This sequence is conserved in rat and mouse PKCδ, and has low homology to other PKC family members.
