Contrasting Roles of a Brain-Specific Protein Kinase C Substrate
Increased phosphorylation of the neuronal membrane-bound protein F1 and translocation of its kinase, Ca2+- and phospholipid-stimulated protein kinase C (PKC), have been related to long-term increases in adult synaptic efficacy in a number of reports from our laboratory (Routtenberg et al.,1985; Lovinger et al., 1985; Akers et al., 1986).
