Differential role of protein kinase C delta isoform in agonist-induced dense granule secretion in human platelets.

Several platelet agonists, including thrombin, collagen, and thromboxane A(2), cause dense granule release independently of thromboxane generation. Because protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms are implicated in platelet secretion, we investigated the role of individual PKC isoforms in platelet dense granule release. PKCdelta was phosphorylated in a time… (More)
