Nuclear protein kinase C isoforms and apoptosis


The process of apoptosis is regulated at multiple levels through phosphorylation by several different protein kinases. The protein kinase C (PKC) family of isozymes have been shown to exert both inhibitory and stimulatory influences on apoptosis. During the apoptotic process phosphorylative events are known to occur also at the nuclear level. Evidence suggests that PKC isoforms play a key role in some steps that lead to nuclear disassembly during the execution phase of apoptosis. This review highlights the recent progress made in determining the roles played by individual PKC nuclear isoforms in the control of apoptosis.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
