Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
Purification The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name PKC alpha (PKCa Antibody Abstract)
Background The Protein Kinase C (PKC) family of homologous serine/threonine protein kinases is involved in a number of processes such as growth, differentiation, and cytokine secretion. At least eleven isozymes have been described. These proteins are products of multiple genes and alternative splicing. PKC consists of a single polypeptide chain containing four conserved regions (C) and five variable regions (V). The N-terminal half containing C1, C2, V1, and V2 constitutes the regulatory domain and interacts with PKC activators Ca2+, phospholipid, diacylglycerol, or phorbol ester. However, the novel PKC (nPKC) subfamily members ( delta, epsilon, eta, and theta isoforms) and the atypical PKC (aPKC) subfamily members (zeta, iota, and lambda isoforms) are Ca2+ independent and lack the C2 domain. The aPKC members are unique in that their activity is independent of diacylglycerols and phorbol esters. They also lack one repeat of the cysteine-rich sequences that are conserved in cPKC and nPKC. The C-terminal region of PKC contains the catalytic domain. The PKC pathway represents a major signal transduction system that is activated following ligand-stimulation of transmembrane receptors by hormones, neurotransmitters and growth factors. Overexpression of PKCalpha has been reported to lead to an enhanced growth rate and induces the phosphorylation of two cellular proteins of 52 kDa and 90 kDa. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.
This antibody has been reported to also crossreact with PKCbeta.
