NCBI Summary for PRKCH
Protein kinase C (PKC) is a family of serine- and threonine-specific protein kinases that can be activated by calcium and the second messenger diacylglycerol. PKC family members phosphorylate a wide variety of protein targets and are known to be involved in diverse cellular signaling pathways. PKC family members also serve as major receptors for phorbol esters, a class of tumor promoters. Each member of the PKC family has a specific expression profile and is believed to play a distinct role in cells. The protein encoded by this gene is one of the PKC family members. It is a calcium-independent and phospholipids-dependent protein kinase. It is predominantly expressed in epithelial tissues and has been shown to reside specifically in the cell nucleus. This protein kinase can regulate keratinocyte differentiation by activating the MAP kinase MAPK13 (p38delta)-activated protein kinase cascade that targets CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein alpha (CEBPA). It is also found to mediate the transcription activation of the transglutaminase 1 (TGM1) gene. [provided by RefSeq]
UniProt Comments for PRKCH
Function: This is calcium-independent, phospholipid-dependent, serine- and threonine-specific enzyme.PKC is activated by diacylglycerol which in turn phosphorylates a range of cellular proteins. PKC also serves as the receptor for phorbol esters, a class of tumor promoters.

Catalytic activity: ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein.

Enzyme regulation: Three specific sites; Thr-513 (activation loop of the kinase domain), Thr-656 (turn motif) and Ser-675 (hydrophobic region), need to be phosphorylated for its full activation.

Subunit structure: Interacts with DGKQ. Ref.8

Tissue specificity: Most abundant in lung, less in heart and skin.

Domain: The C1 domain, containing the phorbol ester/DAG-type region 1 (C1A) and 2 (C1B), is the diacylglycerol sensor and the C2 domain is a non-calcium binding domain.

Involvement in disease: Defects in PRKCH may be a cause of susceptibility to ischemic stroke (ISCHSTR) [

MIM:601367]; also known as cerebrovascular accident or cerebral infarction. A stroke is an acute neurologic event leading to death of neural tissue of the brain and resulting in loss of motor, sensory and/or cognitive function. Ischemic strokes, resulting from vascular occlusion, is considered to be a highly complex disease consisting of a group of heterogeneous disorders with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors. Ref.13

Sequence similarities: Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family. PKC subfamily.Contains 1 AGC-kinase C-terminal domain.Contains 1 C2 domain.Contains 2 phorbol-ester/DAG-type zinc fingers.Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
