The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesELISA: assay dependent.
Immunocytochemistry (frozen): 1/250 (using horseradish peroxidase or alkaline phosphatase).
Western blot: 1/250 (using horseradish peroxidase or alkaline phosphatase). Predicted molecular weight: 82 kDa.
Not tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions / concentrations should be determined by the end user.
With a more sensitive detection system, such as enhanced chemiluminescence or ELISA, the antibody may be diluted further.
FunctionThis is calcium-independent, phospholipid-dependent, serine- and threonine-specific enzyme. 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.
Tissue specificityMost abundant in lung, less in heart and skin.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in PRKCH may be a cause of susceptibility to ischemic stroke (ISCHSTR) [MIM:601367]; also known as cerebrovascular accident or cerebral infarction. A stroke is an acute neurologic event leading to death of neural tissue of the brain and resulting in loss of motor, sensory and/or cognitive function. Ischemic strokes, resulting from vascular occlusion, is considered to be a highly complex disease consisting of a group of heterogeneous disorders with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors.
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.
DomainThe C1 domain, containing the phorbol ester/DAG-type region 1 (C1A) and 2 (C1B), is the diacylglycerol sensor and the C2 domain is a non-calcium binding domain.
