Enhanced PKCβII translocation and PKCβII-RACK1 interactions in PKCε-induced heart failure: a role for RACK1

A small number of studies have established a role for the βII-isoform of protein kinase C (PKCβII) in the induction of cardiac hypertrophy and failure and receptors for activated C kinase (RACKs)...

Molecular conformation dictates signaling module formation: example of PKCε and Src tyrosine kinase

Our laboratory has conducted multiple functional proteomic analyses to characterize the components of protein kinase C (PKC)e cardioprotective signaling complexes and found that activation of PKCe ...

Activation of focal adhesion kinase by protein kinase Cϵ in neonatal rat ventricular myocytes

Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is a nonreceptor protein tyrosine kinase critical for both cardiomyocyte survival and sarcomeric assembly during endothelin (ET)-induced cardiomyocyte hypertrophy. ET-in...

Formation of protein kinase Cε-Lck signaling modules confers cardioprotection

It is reported that Lck, a member of the Src family of tyrosine kinases, forms a functional signaling module with PKCe, demonstrating, for the first time, that the assembly of a module (PKCe-Lck) is an obligatory step in the signal transduction that results in a specific phenotype.

Muscle ring finger protein-1 inhibits PKCε activation and prevents cardiomyocyte hypertrophy

It is established that MURF1 is a key regulator of the PKC-dependent hypertrophic response and can blunt cardiomyocyte hypertrophy, which may have important implications in the pathophysiology of clinical cardiachypertrophy.

Adenoprotection of the heart involves phospholipase C-induced activation and translocation of PKC-ε to RACK 2 in adult rat and mouse

A1R stimulation of the heart is associated with PLC-initiated PKC-ε translocation and association with RACK2, and adenoprotection includes the direct anti-adrenergic action via adenosine A1 receptors on the adrenergic signaling pathway.

Protein Kinase C-ε (PKC-ε): Its Unique Structure and Function

This review summarizes recent progress in the understanding of the unique structure and physiological and pathological roles of PKC-epsilon with a focus mainly on knockout, transgenic, and mutational studies.

The role of HSP27 in RACK1-mediated PKC activation in THP-1 cells

Light is shed on the mechanisms underlying RACK1 pseudosubstrate-induced immune activation and to compare it to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and the role of Hsp27 is evaluated.



Transgenic Overexpression of Constitutively Active Protein Kinase C ε Causes Concentric Cardiac Hypertrophy

To test the hypothesis that activation of the protein kinase C (PKC) e isoform leads to cardiac hypertrophy without failure, transgenic mice with cardiac-specific overexpression are studied.

PKCε modulates NF-κB and AP-1 via mitogen-activated protein kinases in adult rabbit cardiomyocytes

Results demonstrate that both the p44/p42 MAPK and the p54/p46 JNK signaling pathways are essential mediators of this event, and identify NF-κB and AP-1 as downstream targets of PKCε.

A Protein Kinase C Translocation Inhibitor as an Isozyme-selective Antagonist of Cardiac Function*

These isozyme-selective translocation inhibitors provide novel tools to determine the function of individual PKC isozymes in intact cells.

Pharmacologic modulation of protein kinase C isozymes: the role of RACKs and subcellular localisation.

The development and application of isozyme-selective inhibitors of PKC are described, which should allow the exploration of individual PKC isozyme function in a wide range of cell systems.

Identification of intracellular receptor proteins for activated protein kinase C.

Evidence is described for the presence of intracellular receptor proteins that bind activated PKC and it is suggested that binding to RACKs may play a role in activation-induced translocation of PKC.

Protein Kinase C- ξ is Responsible for the Protection of Preconditioning in Rabbit Cardiomyocytes

It is indicated that PKC-epsilon alone is responsible for the early phase of PC's protection in rabbit cardiomyocytes and this study uses novel peptide inhibitors which correspond to part of the amino acid sequence from the isozyme-specific RACK-binding site on the PKC molecule.

Characterization of MAP kinase and PKC isoform and effect of ACE inhibition in hypertrophy in vivo.

A direct relationship between ACE activity and HRE/HRF-mediated gene activation is suggested and imply that PKC-ε and MAP kinase may be involved in transducing this signal.

It is speculated that some of the biological responses elicited by phorbol esters or by activation of receptors coupled to elevation in DAG levels could be mediated by PKC‐independent pathways.
