PRKCZ encodes the human gene, Protein kinase C, zeta. It may also be known as: Protein kinase C zeta type; nPKC-zeta; Protein kinase C zeta type ; PKC-ZETA; PKC2. The encoded protein is an enzyme with an amino acid length of 592 and a mass of 67.7 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. PRKCZ is a member of the Protein kinase superfamily, AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family, PKC subfamily. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Mouse, Rat, Zebrafish, Frog, Chicken.
