  • Function

    This 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 similarities

    Belongs 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 localization

    Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Nucleus.
  • Information by UniProt

Customer reviews and Q&As

Answer

Thank you for contacting us.

Please find attached a modified version of the radiolabel (phosphorus 33-ATP) protocol that was used to measure activity of ab60839. The assay utilized CREBtide as the substrate (KRREILSRRPSYR) but the lab believes you can simply substitute your E. coli protein for the peptide, which I have noted in bold at the bottom of the materials section of the protocol.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
