Background: Protein kinase C (PKC) is a family of serine-threonine kinases, which are classified into three major groups: classical (α, β and γ), novel (δ, ε, η, and θ) and atypical (μ, ξ and ι). PKCβ2 consists of a C-terminal kinase domain and a N-terminal regulatory domain, formed by C1 domains (C1A and C1B) and a C2 domain. Activation of PKC beta 2 involves recruitment to the membrane and interaction with phospholipids, Ca2+ and diacylglycerol. Furthermore, fully active protein results upon phosphorylation of the activation loop. PKCβ is expressed in pancreatic islet cells, monocytes, brain, and many vascular tissues, including retina, kidney and heart and dysregulation is associated with pathogenic processes involved in diabetic microangiopathy such as ischaemia, leakage, neovascularisation and abnormal vasodilator function. The two isoforms, PKC beta 1 and PKC beta 2, are generated by alternative splicing from a single gene and differ at their C-terminus.
