Critical role for classical PKC in activating Akt by phospholipase A2-modified LDL in monocytic cells.


OBJECTIVE Modification of low density lipoprotein (LDL) by phospholipases confers pro-atherogenic properties, although signalling pathways of phospholipase-modified LDL (PLA-LDL) remain obscure. We questioned whether members of the protein kinase C (PKC) family are involved in PLA-LDL-induced Akt phosphorylation and survival of THP-1 monocytic cells… (More)
