 Hyperglycemia is the major causal factor in the development of diabetic vascular complications and can mediate their adverse effects through multiple pathways. One of those mechanisms is the activation of protein kinase C (PKC) by hyperglycemia-induced increases in diacylglycerol (DAG) level, partly due to de novo synthesis. The activation of PKC regulates(More)
Induction of protein kinase C (PKC) pathway in the vascular tissues by hyperglycemia has been associated with many of the cellular changes observed in the complications of diabetes. Recently, we have reported that the use of a novel, orally effective specific inhibitor of PKC b isoform (LY333531) normalized many of the early retinal and renal hemodynamics(More)
