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). PKCθ consists of a C-terminal kinase domain and a N-terminal regulatory domain, formed by a C1 domain and a C2-like region. Activation of PKCθ involves recruitment to the membrane and interaction with phospholipids and diacylglycerol. Furthermore, fully active protein results upon phosphorylation of the activation loop. PKCθ is predominantly expressed in hematopoietic cells, especially in T cells, and is involved in signaling pathways associated with T cell development and/or activation. Targets of PKCθ in T cells are e.g. the transcription factors nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) and activator protein-1 (AP-1).
