The leukocyte integrins are regulated by transcriptional and post-transcriptional mechanisms in a leukemic cell that overexpresses protein kinase C-zeta.


Overexpression of protein kinase C-zeta (PKC-zeta) in the leukemic myeloid cell line U937 (U937-PKC-zeta cells), previously shown to induce leukemic cell differentiation, resulted in nearly complete downregulation of leukocyte integrins CD11a, CD11b, CD11d, and CD18, but not CD11c from the cell surface. The steady-state level of mRNAs for the downregulated… (More)
