An inhibitory fragment derived from protein kinase Cepsilon prevents enhancement of nerve growth factor responses by ethanol and phorbol esters.


We have studied nerve growth factor (NGF)-induced differentiation of PC12 cells to identify PKC isozymes important for neuronal differentiation. Previous work showed that tumor-promoting phorbol esters and ethanol enhance NGF-induced mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase activation and neurite outgrowth by a PKC-dependent mechanism. Ethanol also increases… (More)
