Epinephrine-mediated protein kinase C and Rap1b activation requires the co-stimulation of Gz-, Gq-, and Gi-coupled receptors.


We have recently shown that ADP-induced activation of protein kinase C (PKC) requires the co-stimulation of both P2Y1 and P2Y12 receptors. In this work, we show that inhibition of ADP-mediated phosphorylation of pleckstrin, the main PKC substrate, caused by antagonists of the P2Y12 receptor can be reversed by stimulation of the α2-adrenergic receptor by… (More)
