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.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cell membrane. Nucleus.

ab11723 was shown to specifically react with PKC alpha in wild-type HAP1 cells. No band was observed when PKC alpha knockout samples were examined. Wild-type and PKC alpha knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab11723 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted 1/500 and 1/2000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4ºC. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216772) and Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216777) secondary antibodies at 1/10,000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
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 - ab11723 observed at 77 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.
