Detects human PKC zeta in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, less than 25% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) PKC iota and rhPKC alpha and no cross-reactivity with rhPKC epsilon, eta, beta 1, beta 2, delta, gamma, nu, mu, or theta is observed. In Western blots, 100% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) PKC iota and no cross-reactivity with rhPKC epsilon or eta is observed.

Detection of Human PKC zeta by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human PKC zeta Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6666) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for PKC zeta at approximately 78 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: PKC zeta
PKC zeta (protein kinase C-zeta, EC=22.214.171.124), also called PKC2, is a 592 amino acid (aa), 79 kDa member of the atypical PKC (aPKC) subfamily of Ser/Thr protein kinases. aPKC proteins can be activated by phorbol esters, but are insensitive to calcium and diacylglycerol. PKC zeta regulates cell polarity in early development, and is necessary for cytokine-induced chemotaxis of macrophages and cancer cells, chemokine-induced adhesion of neutrophils, and polarization of Th2 cells. It is activated by PDK1 phosphorylation, binds ceramide, and translocates to the plasma membrane where it regulates adherens and tight junction formation. PKC zeta contains an OPR domain (aa 15-98), a zinc finger region (aa 130-180), and a protein kinase domain (aa 252-518). PKC zeta potential variants of 409 or 539 aa have alternate start sites at aa 184 or aa 9 (also missing aa 186-233), respectively. Within the region used as an immunogen, human PKC zeta shares 98% aa identity with mouse and rat PKC zeta.
