Connexin43 phosphorylation at S368 is acute during S and G2/M and in response to protein kinase C activation.


Phorbol esters such as 12-O-tetradeconylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) activate protein kinase C, increase Connexin43 (Cx43) phosphorylation, and decrease cell-cell communication via gap junctions in many cell types. Previous work has implicated protein kinase C (PKC) in the direct phosphorylation of Cx43 at S368, which results in a change in single channel… (More)
