Abstract

Various membrane lipid metabolites, generated by phospholipases C and D (PLCs, PLDs), are known to regulate the activities of protein kinases C (PKCs) and GTP-ase activating proteins (GAPs) in a range of cellular processes. Conventional Ca(2+)-dependent PKCs (alpha, beta I, beta II, and gamma), PLCs and various GAPs are all known to contain copies of a phospholipid-binding domain, termed C2 or CalB. Here we recognize that C2 domains are also present in "new" Ca(2+)-independent PKCs (delta, epsilon, eta, and theta), other kinases, a eukaryotic PLD, the breakpoint cluster region (BCR) gene product, and two further GAPS. Twenty-two previously unrecognized C2 domain sequences are presented, which include a single copy in the mammalian poreforming proteins, perforin.
