  • General notes


    PKC gamma is an 80 kDa member of the conventional group (cPKCs: sensitive to calcium, diacylglycerol and phorbol esters) of the PKC family of serine/threonine family kinases that are involved in a wide range of physiological processes including mitogenesis, cell survival and transcriptional regulation. PKC gamma plays a key role in neuronal signal transduction and is translocated from the nucleus to the cytoplasm upon activation by phorbol ester, where in epithelial cells it has been implicated in regulating intracellular communication. The activation loop threonine (threonine 514 in PKC gamma) of conventional PKCs is phosphorylated by phosphoinositide-dependent kinase-1 (PDK1), which is necessary for their autophosphorylation, a critical step in the generation of a catalytically mature enzyme. Threonine 655 is an autophosphorylation site in the carboxy-terminus of PKC gamma.

Properties

  • FormLiquid
  • Storage instructionsShipped at 4°C. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
  • Storage bufferPreservative: 0.05% Sodium Azide
    Constituents: PBS, 1mg/ml BSA. pH 7.3
  • Concentration information loading...
  • PurityImmunogen affinity purified
  • Purification notesThe antibody has been negatively preadsorbed using a non-phosphopeptide corresponding to the site of phosphorylation to remove antibody that is reactive with non-phosphorylated PKC gamma. The final product is generated by affinity chromatography using a PKC gamma-derived peptide that is phosphorylated at threonine 655.

Target

  • FunctionThis is a calcium-activated, 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 specificityExpressed in Purkinje cells of the cerebellar cortex.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in PRKCG are the cause of spinocerebellar ataxia type 14 (SCA14) [MIM:605361]. Spinocerebellar ataxia is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of cerebellar disorders. Patients show progressive incoordination of gait and often poor coordination of hands, speech and eye movements, due to degeneration of the cerebellum with variable involvement of the brainstem and spinal cord. SCA14 is an autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia (ADCA).
  • 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.

  • Peptide Competition and Phosphatase treatment: Lysates prepared from HeLa cells stimulated with PMA were resolved by SDS-PAGE on a 10% polyacrylamide gel and transferred to PVDF. Membranes were either left untreated (1-11) or treated with lambda (ë) phosphatase (12), blocked with a 3% low-fat milk-TBST buffer overnight at 4°C, and incubated with 0.50 µg/mL ab5796 antibody for two hours at room temperature in a 3% BSA TBST buffer, following prior incubation with: no peptide (1, 11, 12), the non-phosphopeptide corresponding to the immunogen (2), a generic phosphothreonine containing peptide (3), the phosphopeptide immunogen (4), or, the phosphopeptide corresponding to the immunogen from other PKC isoforms (5-10). After washing, membranes were incubated with goat F(ab’)2 anti-rabbit IgG alkaline phosphatase and signals were detected using the Tropix WesternStarTM method. The data show that the peptide corresponding to PKC gamma [pT655] blocks the antibody signal while the peptides corresponding to PKC isoforms beta 1 [pT642], delta [pS645], epsilon [pT710] and eta [pT655] do not completely block the antibody signal, thereby demonstrating the specificity of the antibody. However, peptides corresponding to PKC isoforms alpha [pT638] and beta 2 [pT641] do block the antibody signal, indicating that the ab5796 antibody may cross-react with their respective sites. The data also show that phosphatase stripping eliminates the signal, verifying that the antibody is phosphospecific.
