PKC epsilon in Human Lung Cancer Tissue. PKC epsilon was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human lung cancer tissue using Mouse Anti-Human PKC epsilon Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5134) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and nuclei of cancer cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Background: PKC epsilon
PKC epsilon (protein kinase C-epsilon) is an 87 kDa member of the novel PKC subfamily, AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family of enzymes. It is a widely-expressed Ca++‑insensitive, phospholipid-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the phosphorylation of multiple proteins. Human PKC epsilon is 737 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains two general regions: a non-Ca++-binding plus lipid binding regulatory region (aa 1-99 and 169-292, respectively), and an ATP-binding catalytic domain (aa 408-668). Phosphorylation of PKC epsilon on Thr566, Ser368 and Ser729 activates the enzyme and increases its molecular weight to 92 kDa. One potential splice form shows a 114 aa substitution for aa 118-737. Over aa 580-737, human PKC epsilon is 98% and 99% aa identical to mouse and canine PKC epsilon, respectively.
