Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.4.0)
Enables protein kinase C activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of T-helper 17 type immune response; regulation of cell-cell adhesion; and regulation of gene expression. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including positive regulation of CD4-positive, alpha-beta 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; genitourinary system; gut; limb; and nervous system. Used to study retinal detachment. Orthologous to human PRKCQ (protein kinase C theta).
