PKC mu (protein kinase C mu, PRKD1) is a serine/threonine kinase whose activation is dependent on the phosphorylation of two activation loop sites, Ser744 and Ser748, via a PKC-dependent signaling pathway. In addition to the two activation loop sites, the carboxy-terminal Ser916 has been identified as an autophosphorylation site for PKD/PKCu. Phosphorylation at Ser916 correlates with PKD/PKCu catalytic activity. PKC mu is one of the PKC family members, and the protein binds to the trans-Golgi network and regulates the fission of transport carriers specifically destined to the cell surface. Members of the protein kinase C (PKC) family function in many extracellular receptor-mediated signal transduction pathways.
