  • Function
    This 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 specificity
    Expressed in brain, and to a lesser extent in lung, kidney and testis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs 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.
  • Domain
    The 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 localization
    Cytoplasm. 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.

  • Immunoprecipitation.
    Rat renal cortex from adult male Sprague-Dawley CD rats was isolated and suspended in CelLyticTM MT Mammalian Tissue Lysis/Extraction reagent containing complete protease inhibitor mixture. Tissues were then homogenized and centrifuged at 2,500 x g for 10 minutes at 4 °C. The supernatant was used for immunoprecipitation. To eliminate nonspecific binding, 1 ml of rat kidney lysate (3 mg of protein) was pre-cleared by incubation with 50µl of TrueBlotTM anti-rabbit Ig IP beads overnight at 4 °C. Cleared cell lysates were incubated with either 7µg of ab4137 or 1µg of polyclonal rabbit anti-rOAT3 for 2 hours at 4 °C. TrueBlot anti-rabbit Ig IP beads (30µl) was added and incubation was continued for 2 hours at 4 °C. Bound proteins were washed 7 times with increasing washing stringency IP buffers and eluted from beads by heating in 4 x NuPAGE LDS sample buffer for 10 minutes. The Invitrogen NuPAGE Novex Tris
