Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein kinase C activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to insulin stimulus; positive regulation of glucose import; and positive regulation of protein localization to plasma membrane. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Schmidt-Lanterman incisure; apical plasma membrane; and nucleus. Predicted to colocalize with the bicellular tight junction. Used to study abdominal obesity-metabolic syndrome; obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human PRKCI (protein kinase C iota).
