Protein kinase C (PKC) is an important family of kinases regulated by lipid second messengers and cofactors that interact with cellular membranes. Both Ca(2+)-dependent and -independent isoforms of PKC have been described in rat cerebrocortical presynaptic nerve terminals (synaptosomes). In the present study, synaptosomes were prepared from human cerebral cortex obtained from standard temporal lobe specimens removed due to epilepsy. In order to measure free cytosolic Ca(2+) ([Ca(2+)](i)) and… CONTINUE READING
