|Description|| Pancreatic cancer (PC) is a very aggressive disease with few therapeutic options. PKCiota is required for the transformed growth of pancreatic, ovarian, lung, and intestinal cancers; however, the role of the other atypical PKC, PKCzeta (PKC?), in cancer is controversial. In this study, Butler and her colleagues investigate the role of PKC? and the therapeutic potential of the aPKCs in PC.
