Involvement of protein kinase C-alpha and -epsilon in extracellular Ca(2+) signalling mediated by the calcium sensing receptor.

The sensing of extracellular Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](o)) and modulation of cellular processes associated with acute or sustained changes in [Ca(2+)](o) are cell-type specific and mediated by the calcium sensing receptor (CaR). [Ca(2+)](o) signalling requires protein kinase C (PKC), but the identity and role of PKC isoforms in CaR-mediated responses… CONTINUE READING
