Several laboratories have identified the PIP3 regulated kinase, PDK-1, as the kinase responsible for PKC activation loop phosphorylation (46,52). Phosphorylation at two additional C-terminal sites contributes to the stability of the kinase. These include an autophosphorylation site and a C-terminal hydrophobic site (48). Phosphorylation at these sites renders PKC protease and phosphatase resistant, and catalytically competent. However PKC is still in an inactive conformation in which the substrate binding pocket is occupied by the pseudosubstrate domain.
