A second DAG binding protein that mediates effects of Gα q signaling in ventral cord motor neurons is protein kinase C (PKC) (Sieburth et al., ). PKC appears to affect release of neuropeptide-containing dense-core vesicles, although the targets via which PKC does this remain unknown.

Moreover, inhibition of palmitoylation may have a place in limiting the activity of oncogenic N-Ras that drives melanoma and hematopoietic malignancies. The idea of non-specific inhibition of protein palmitoylation with compounds like 2-bromopalmitate are problematic since the number of palmitoylated proteins in the human proteome is vast Cells are constantly sensing and responding to extracellular stimuli in their environment. A central question in cell biology is how intracellular signaling pathways respond to the external environment to make appropriate decisions and how decision-making processes go awry in disease conditions.

The chapter focuses on the protein kinase C (PKC) that was originally identified as a Ca 2+ - and phospholipid-dependent protein kinase, and subsequently shown to be activated by diacylglycerols and phorbol esters. This category is termed as conventional PKC (cPKC) to distinguish it.

Abstract. Members of the PKC family have been widely implicated in control of cell proliferation. Consistent with this role, PKC signaling can negatively or positively modulate the cell cycle at multiple stages, including cell cycle entry and exit, progression through G 1 and S phases, and transit through the G 1 and G 2 checkpoints.
