Protein kinase C epsilon (PKC ?) is one of major isoforms in novel PKC family. Although it has been extensively characterized in the past decade, the role of PKC ? in neuron is still not well understood. Advances in molecular biology have now removed significant barriers to the direct investigation of PKC ? functions in vivo, and PKC ? has been increasingly implicated in the neural biological functions and associated neurogenic diseases. Recent studies have provided important insights into the influence of PKC ? on cortical processing at both the single cell level and network level. These studies provide compelling evidence that PKC ? could regulate distinct aspects of neural signal transduction and suggest that the coordinated actions of a number of molecular signals contribute to the specification and differentiation of PKC ? signal pathway in the developing brain.
