Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human/Mouse PKCa antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human/Mouse PKC alpha by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of 293T human embryonic kidney cell line, Saos-2 human osteosarcoma cell line, and Balb/3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human/Mouse PKCa Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5340) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for PKCa at approximately 80 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: PKC alpha

PKC alpha (Protein kinase C alpha) is an 80 kDa member of the PKC subfamily, AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family of enzymes. It is widely expressed, and serves multiple cell-specific functions. PKC alpha is activated by increased diacylglycerol and intracellular calcium, and translocates to several sites such as the Golgi, nucleus and plasma membrane. Human PKC alpha contains two zinc finger regions (aa 36‑151), a protein kinase domain (aa 339‑557), and an AGC kinase region (aa 598‑668). Phosphorylations on Thr497, Thr638 and Ser657 are necessary for kinase activity. Over aa 604‑672, human PKC alpha shows 100% aa identity to mouse PKC alpha.
