  • Application notesIs unsuitable for Flow Cyt,IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • FunctionThis is a calcium-independent, phospholipid-dependent, serine- and threonine-specific enzyme. Phosphorylates 'Ser-311' of RELA subunit of NF-kappa-B.
      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. Subunit of a quaternary complex that plays a central role in epithelial cell polarization.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed in brain, and to a lesser extent in lung, kidney and testis.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. PKC subfamily.
      Contains 1 AGC-kinase C-terminal domain.
      Contains 1 OPR domain.
      Contains 1 phorbol-ester/DAG-type zinc finger.
      Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
    • DomainThe OPR domain mediates mutually exclusive interactions with SQSTM1 and PARD6B.
      The C1 domain does not bind the diacylglycerol (DAG).
    • Post-translational
      CDH5 is required for its phosphorylation at Thr-410.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Endosome. Cell junction. In the retina, localizes in the terminals of the rod bipolar cells (By similarity). Associates with endosomes. Presence of KRIT1, CDH5 and RAP1B is required for its localization to the cell junction.

      ab108970 was shown to specifically react with PKC zeta when PKC zeta knockout samples were used. Wild-type and PKC zeta knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab108970 and ab8226 (loading control to beta actin) were both diluted 1/1000 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.

    • ab108970 staining PKC zeta in human HeLa cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with methanol. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/400 in PBS) for 1 hour at 22°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody. Counterstained with DAPI.
