General description

Anti-Protein kinase C antibody, Mouse monoclonal (mouse IgG2a isotype) is derived from the MC5 hybridoma produced by the fusion of X-63 myeloma cells and splenocytes from a BALB/c mouse immunized with purified bovine brain protein kinase C1. Protein kinase C (PKC), is a family of phospholipid- and calcium-activated, diacylglycerol (DAG)-dependent serine/threonine kinases.


Monoclonal Anti-Protein kinase C antibody recognizes an epitope located within the amino acid residues 296- 317, at the hinge region, close to or at the trypsin cleavage site of Protein kinase C molecule . The antibody specifically recognizes Protein kinase C from human, rat, bovine, mouse, chicken, rabbit and fish origin.


Anti-Protein kinase C antibody has been used in:
  • immunoblotting
  • immunohistochemistry
  • immunofluorescence
  • immunoprecipitation

Biochem/physiol Actions

Protein kinase C (PKC) play a central role in a variety of cell processes, including: intracellular signal transduction, cell proliferation, apoptosis, differentiation, migration and adhesion, tumor promotion, cardiac hypertrophy, angiogenesis, platelet function, inflammation and oncogenesis. Neuronal PKC modulates several functions such as nerve cell excitability, neuronal plasticity and release of neurotransmitters. PKC activity is regulated by two mechanisms- firstly by phosphorylation which regulates the active site and subcellular localization of the enzyme, secondly by secondary messengers which facilitate association of PKC on membrane. The PKC activity is strongly associated with tumor initiation and progression and have been implemented as a target for treatment of cancer progression and diabetic retinopathy.

Storage and Stability

Store at –20°C. For continuous use, store at 2–8°C for up to one month. For extended storage, freeze in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use. Working dilution samples should be discarded if not used within 12 hours.
