Activity and subcellular distribution of protein kinase C were estimated in liver cytosol and membrane fractions of rats carrying a turpentine-induced inflammation. Protein kinase C activity increases significantly 8 h after treatment in the membrane fraction, with concurrent reduction in the cytosol; 10 h after treatment the membrane-associated activity returns to normal, without concomitant recovery of that detected in the cytosol. The specific binding of phorbol dibutyrate to the liver membrane fraction increases but overall the effect is less evident and delayed in time. The changes are associated to alterations in the phosphorylation pattern of some liver proteins. Liver protein kinase C activity and intracellular distribution seem to be affected by a treatment which is known to induce an acute-phase response in the liver cells.
