Immunohistochemistry analysis of PKC DELTA [PS664] showing staining in the cytoplasm of paraffin-embedded human breast carcinoma (right) compared to a negative control without primary antibody (left). To expose target proteins, antigen retrieval was performed using 10mM sodium citrate (pH 6.0), microwaved for 8-15 min. Following antigen retrieval, tissues were blocked in 3% H2O2-methanol for 15 min at room temperature, washed with ddH2O and PBS, and then probed with a PKC DELTA [PS664] Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (44976G) diluted in 3% BSA-PBS at a dilution of 1:20 overnight at 4°C in a humidified chamber. Tissues were washed extensively in PBST and detection was performed using an HRP-conjugated secondary antibody followed by colorimetric detection using a DAB kit. Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and dehydrated with ethanol and xylene to prep for mounting.

Members of the Protein kinase C (PKC) family of serine/threonine protein kinases are grouped by their activation mechanism. Classical or conventional PKCs (PKC alpha-, betaI- , betaII- and gamma-) are activated by phosphatidylserine in a calcium dependent manner and can bind diacylglycerol. The Ca2+ insensitive novel PKCs (PKCs epsilon-, delta-, theta- and eta) are also activated by diacylglycerol and phosphatidylserine. The atypical PKCs (PKCs iota- and zeta-) are insensitive to Ca2+, DAG and phorbolesters. All PKCs isoforms consist of a highly conserved catalytic domain connected to a regulatory domain via a hinge region. PKCs are involved in positive and negative regulation of cell proliferation, apoptosis, differentiation, migration and adhesion, tumorigenesis, cardiac hypertrophy, angiogenesis, platelet function and inflammation, by directly phosphorylating targets such as RAF1, BCL2, CSPG4, TNNT2/CTNT, or activating signaling cascades involving MAPK1/3 (ERK1/2) and RAP1GAP.
