      Background InformationProtein Kinase c alpha (PKC alpha) is a 77 kDa member of the conventional group (cPKCs: sensitive to calcium, diacylglycerol, phosphatidylserine and phorbol esters) of the PKC family of serine/ threonine kinases that are involved in a wide range of physiological processes including mitogenesis, cell survival and transcriptional regulation. PKC alpha is an ubiquitously expressed PKC isozyme that has been implicated in the regulation of a broad range of cellular functions including proliferation, differentiation, development, migration, cell-cell adhesion, cell extracellular matrix adhesion, and solute transport. The activation loop threonine (threonine 497 in PKC alpha) of conventional PKCs is phosphorylated by phosphoinositide-dependent kinase-1 (PDK1). This phosphorylation is necessary for the autophosphorylation of threonine 638 in the carboxy-terminus of PKC alpha, a step that is critical for regulating the rate of PKC alpha dephosphorylation and inactivation.
      Product Information
      • Included Positive Antigen Control: Catalog # 12-301, non-stimulated A431 cell lysate. Add 2.5 μL of 2-mercaptoethanol/100 μL of lysate and boil for 5 minutes to reduce the preparation. Load 20 μg of reduced lysate per lane for minigels.
      PresentationPurified mouse monoclonal IgG1 in storage buffer containing (0.1 M Tris-glycine, pH 7.4, 0.15 M NaCl, 0.05% sodium azide).
      ApplicationAnti-PKCα Antibody, clone M4 is an antibody against PKCα for use in IP, NEUT, RIA & WB.
      Key Applications
      • Immunoprecipitation
      • Neutralizing
      • Radioimmunoassay
      • Western Blotting
      Application NotesImmunoprecipitation:
      4 μg of a previous lot immunoprecipitated PKCα from an A431 RIPA cell lysate and a bovine brain extract.

      An independent laboratory showed that 20 μg of this antibody can inhibit >50% of the kinase activity of 20 ng PKCα (Leach, K.L., 1998).
      Biological Information
      ImmunogenPKCα purified from rabbit brain cytosol.
      ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
      SpecificitySpecific for PKCα. MW: ~82 kDa.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryProtein kinase C (PKC) is a family of serine- and threonine-specific protein kinases that can be activated by calcium and the second messenger diacylglycerol. PKC family members phosphorylate a wide variety of protein targets and are known to be involved in diverse cellular signaling pathways. PKC family members also serve as major receptors for phorbol esters, a class of tumor promoters. Each member of the PKC family has a specific expression profile and is believed to play a distinct role in cells. The protein encoded by this gene is one of the PKC family members. This kinase has been reported to play roles in many different cellular processes, such as cell adhesion, cell transformation, cell cycle checkpoint, and cell volume control. Knockout studies in mice suggest that this kinase may be a fundamental regulator of cardiac contractility and Ca(2+) handling in myocytes.
