Association of phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase to protein kinase C zeta during interleukin-2 stimulation.

Interleukin-2 induces a serine-phosphorylated phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase activity in the mouse T cell line TS1 alpha beta. Moreover, protein kinase C (PKC) zeta directly or indirectly associates with the phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase and the association appears to be necessary for the serine-phosphorylated phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase activity, since release of zeta PKC by competition of binding with peptides spanning the p110 sequence from amino acids 907 to 925 abolishes the serine-phosphorylated phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase activity. This kinase activity is also blocked when zeta PKC expression is inhibited by antisense oligonucleotide. Inhibition of phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase activity by wortmannin does not abolish zeta PKC association.
