The epsilon subspecies of protein kinase C (epsilon PKC) was purified to near homogeneity from the soluble fraction of rat brain by successive chromatographies on DEAE-cellulose, threonine-Sepharose, phenyl-5PW, Mono Q, heparin-5PW, and hydroxyapatite columns. The enzyme from COS-7 cells that were transfected with an epsilon PKC cDNA expression plasmid(More)
The cellular and intracellular localization of the epsilon-subspecies of protein kinase C (PKC) in the rat brain was demonstrated by immunocytochemistry using specific antibodies against epsilon-PKC. The epsilon-PKC-specific immunoreactivity was most abundant in the hippocampal formation, olfactory tubercle and Calleja's islands, was moderate in the(More)
Binding of sugar-specific lectins to the monkey retina was investigated with particular reference to the effects of pretreatment with neuraminidase on the photoreceptor cells. Neuraminidase-treated or untreated retinal sections were examined with a fluorescence microscope after incubation with the following fluorescein-labeled lectins: peanut agglutinin(More)
The delta-subspecies of protein kinase C (delta PKC) was purified to near homogeneity from the Triton X-100 extract of the rat brain particulate fraction by successive chromatographies on S-Sepharose fast flow, phenyl 5PW, heparin 5PW, hydroxyapatite, and Mono Q columns. The purified enzyme was a doublet with molecular masses of 78 and 76 kDa on SDS/PAGE.(More)
Protein kinase C (PKC) was detected in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae with bovine myelin basic protein as the phosphate acceptor. The enzyme was purified at least 500-fold by a four-step column chromatographic procedure (phenyl-Sepharose CL-4B, Mono Q, Heparin-5PW, and hydroxyapatite). The molecular mass was approximately 90 kDa, as estimated by(More)
Protein kinase C (PKC) was partially purified from Xenopus laevis oocytes by ammonium sulfate fractionation followed by DEAE-cellulose and hydroxyapatite column chromatography. In the latter chromatography, two distinct PKC activities were identified. Both PKC fractions contained an 80 kDa protein which was recognized by three antisera raised against the(More)
Signal-induced hydrolysis of inositol phospholipid produces two second messengers, diacylglycerol and inositol trisphosphate. Diacylglycerol activates protein kinase C, whereas inositol trisphosphate mobilizes Ca2+ from its internal store. Analogously, signal-induced hydrolysis of choline phospholipid generates two second messengers, unsaturated free fatty(More)
Sixteen clones (RASK-1 to -16) of murine monoclonal antibodies were raised against ras Mr 21,000 protein (p21). The p21 produced by Escherichia coli with inserted v-Ki-ras genes was used as immunogen. RASK-1 was found to be specific for Ki-ras p21, whereas RASK-2 to -16 reacted with the p21s of Ki-, N-, and Ha-ras genes in both enzyme-linked immunosorbent(More)
