an AGC protein kinase of the PKC family. A calcium-independent, phospholipid-dependent atypical protein kinase C. Is not activated by phorbolesters or diaglycerol. May play role in the secretory response to nutrients. Involved in cell polarization processes and the formation of epithelial tight junctions. Predominantly expressed in lung and brain, but also expressed at lower levels in many tissues including pancreatic islets. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
