Mitochondrial translocation of protein kinase C delta in phorbol ester-induced cytochrome c release and apoptosis



Mitochondrial translocation of protein kinase C delta in phorbol ester-induced cytochrome c release and apoptosis



Journal of Biological Chemistry 275(29): 21793-6



Apoptosis is induced by the release of cytochrome c from mitochondria to the cytoplasm. The present studies demonstrate that the phorbol ester 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) induces translocation of protein kinase C (PKC) delta from the cytoplasm to mitochondria. The results also show that translocation of PKCdelta results in release of cytochrome c. The functional significance of this event is further supported by the demonstration that PKCdelta translocation is required for TPA-induced apoptosis. These findings demonstrate that translocation of PKCdelta to mitochondria is responsible, at least in part, for inducing cytochrome c release and apoptosis.
