Protein kinase C isoenzyme: selective expression pattern of protein kinase C-θ during mouse development

Protein kinase C (PKC)-θ, a serine/threonine protein kinase and novel PKC subfamily member, has been recently identified as an essential component of the T cell synapse which activates the NF-kB signaling cascade leading to expression of the IL-2 gene during T cell activation. By RNA in situ hybridization to whole-body embryo sections it is shown that the… (More)
