Calcium-dependent protein kinase C activity of neutrophils in localized juvenile periodontitis.


Protein kinase C is a key molecule in neutrophil signal transduction after receptor stimulation by soluble bioactive molecules. It has been reported that neutrophils from most patients with localized juvenile periodontitis (LJP) do not have a normal response after stimulation with a chemotactic ligand such as N-formylmethionylleucylphenylalanine (FMLP).
