Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/250. Predicted molecular weight: 80 kDa. (AP/HRP). With a more sensitive detection system, such as enhanced chemiluminescence or ELISA, the antibody may be diluted further.


  • FunctionThis is a calcium-activated, phospholipid-dependent, serine- and threonine-specific enzyme. May play a role in cell motility by phosphorylating CSPG4.
    PKC is activated by diacylglycerol which in turn phosphorylates a range of cellular proteins. PKC also serves as the receptor for phorbol esters, a class of tumor promoters.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. PKC subfamily.
    Contains 1 AGC-kinase C-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 C2 domain.
    Contains 2 phorbol-ester/DAG-type zinc fingers.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.

Anti-PKC alpha antibody images

  • Predicted band size : 80 kDa

    Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 2: PKC alpha knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 3: K562 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 4: HEK293 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab4124 observed at 85 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.
    ab4124 was shown to recognize PKC alpha when PKC alpha knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and PKC alpha knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab4124 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted to 1/250 and 1/2000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with goat anti-rabbit IgG (H + L) and goat anti-mouse IgG (H + L) secondary antibodies at 1/10 000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.
