Phosphorylation of myristoylated alanine-rich protein kinase C substrate (MARCKS) in intact cells has been employed as an indicator for activation of protein kinase C (PKC). Specific PKC isoenzymes responsible for MARCKS phosphorylation under physiological conditions, however, remained to be identified. In our present study using stably transfected NIH 3T3(More)
Expression of transforming Ha-Ras L61 in NIH3T3 cells causes profound morphological alterations which include a disassembly of actin stress fibers. The Ras-induced dissolution of actin stress fibers is blocked by the specific PKC inhibitor GF109203X at concentrations which inhibit the activity of the atypical aPKC isotypes lambda and zeta, whereas lower(More)
We examined the upstream kinases for mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activation during ischemic hypoxia and reoxygenation using H9c2 cells derived from rat cardiomyocytes. Protein kinase C (PKC)zeta, an atypical PKC isoform mainly expressed in rat heart, has been shown to act as an upstream kinase of MAPK during ischemic hypoxia and reoxygenation by(More)
Expression of transforming Ha-Ras L61 in NIH3T3 cells causes profound morphological alterations which include a disassembly of actin stress fibers. The Ras-induced dissolution of actin stress fibers is blocked by the specific PKC inhibitor GF109203X at concentrations which inhibit the activity of the atypical aPKC isotypes ␭ and ␨ , whereas lower(More)
The implication of protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms cPKC-alpha, nPKC-epsilon, aPKC-lambda and aPKC-zeta in the transcriptional activation of a c-fos promoter-driven CAT-reporter construct by transforming Ha-Ras has been investigated. This was achieved by employing antisense constructs encoding RNA directed against isoform-specific 5' sequences of the(More)
