Protein kinase C refers to a group of proteins that regulate the chemicals which stimulate cell growth (called growth factors), transmit signals to the brain (neurotransmitters), and regulate hormone production. They play a particularly important role in regulating endothelial growth factors (chemicals that regulate the growth of blood vessels). Irregularities in the protein kinase C pathway are associated with conditions that arise due to abnormalities of the blood vessels, such as diabetic retinopathy.
