Protein kinase C (PKC)

Overview

« Hide

Protein kinase C is the target for the tumour-promoting phorbol esters, such as tetradecanoyl-β-phorbol acetate (TPA, also known as PMA).

Classical protein kinase C isoforms: PKCα, PKCβ, PKCγ. Members of the classical protein kinase C family are activated by Ca2+ and diacylglycerol, and may be inhibited by GF109203X, calphostin C, Gö6983, chelerythrine and Ro31-8220.

Novel protein kinase C isoforms: PKCδ, PKCε, PKCη, PKCθ and PKCμ. Members of the classical protein kinase C family are activated by diacylglycerol and may be inhibited by calphostin C, Gö6983 and chelerythrine.

Atypical protein kinase C isoforms:PKCι, PKCζ.
