Activation of endogenous protein kinase C enhances currents through alpha 1 and alpha 2 glycine receptor channels.


The effects of Ca2+ /phospholipid dependent (PKC) phosphorylation on the current amplitudes of alpha 1 and alpha 2 glycine receptors expressed in Xenopus oocytes were examined by whole cell voltage clamp recording. In studies using phorbol esters, PKC phosphorylation has been shown to reduce glycine-induced currents. Endogenous PKC activation by… (More)
