BACKGROUND: In comparison to the classical isoforms of protein kinase C (PKC), the novel isoforms are thought to play minor or inhibitory roles in the regulation of platelet activation and thrombosis. OBJECTIVES: To measure the levels of PKCθ and PKCε and to investigate the phenotype of mice deficient in both novel PKC isoforms. METHODS: Tail bleeding and platelet activation assays were monitored in mice and platelets from mice deficient in both PKCθ and PKCε. RESULTS: PKCε plays a minor role...Expand abstract
