Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Enables protein kinase C activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of NF-kappaB transcription factor activity; positive regulation of cytokine production; and regulation of cell-cell adhesion. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including positive regulation of T cell proliferation; positive regulation of interleukin-2 production; and protein phosphorylation. Located in cytoplasm and immunological synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; alimentary system; genitourinary system; limb; and nervous system. Used to study retinal detachment. Orthologous to human PRKCQ (protein kinase C theta).
