Activation of purified human protein kinase C alpha and beta I isoenzymes in vitro by Ca2+, phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate.

The increasing number of eukaryotic protein kinase C (PKC) isoenzymes which have been described has raised great interest in potential differences in the cellular expression, the mode of activation and the substrate specificity of these isoenzymes. The last two aspects have mostly been studied with isoenzymes purified from rat or bovine brain or from… (More)
