A \(C{{a}^{{{{2}^{ + }}}}}\) + phospholipid-dependent protein kinase and a phorbol ester receptor were purified from a cytosolic extract of rabbit renal cortex by ion exchange chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and affinity chromatography on polyacrylamide-immobilized phosphatidylserine.Protein kinase activity was monitored by assaying \(C{{a}^{{{{2}^{ + }}}}}\) + phospholipid-dependent phosphorylation of histone H1, phorbol ester binding by measuring specific binding of [3H]- phorbol dibutyrate in the presence of \(C{{a}^{{{{2}^{ + }}}}}\) and phosphatidylserine. Both activities eluted together from the DEAE-cellulose column, bound to the affinity column in the presence of \(C{{a}^{{{{2}^{ + }}}}}\), and eluted symmetrically from the affinity column upon application of EGTA. Recovery from the affinity column was the same for both activities (usually 20–30%) and resulted in a high degree of purification.
