Protein kinase C isozyme expression in sciatic nerves and spinal cords of experimentally diabetic rats.

Changes in the expression and activation of protein kinase C (PKC) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetic neuropathy. Recent studies in liver, retina, and cardiovascular tissues from experimentally diabetic rats have demonstrated that diabetes has a selective effect on the expression and subcellular distribution of isozymes of PKC. In the… (More)
