It should, however, be noted that while many chemical constituents in the DG extract likely produce ROS through CYP-catalyzed biotransformation resulting in cytoprotection, it is also possible that components such as puerarin and diadzein can act directly by opening the [Ca.sup.2+]-activated potassium channel and activating PKCe or inhibiting nuclear factor-kappa B activation, respectively (Gao et al., 2006; Kim et al., 2009).

This ciliary slowing is regulated by the activation of another signaling protein called protein kinase Ce (PKCe); moreover, once PKCe becomes inactivated again, the ciliated cells detach from the epithelium (Slager et al.
Studies demonstrated that in the IP protection cascade mito[K.sub.ATP] channel opening causes an increase in ROS production, which activates protein kinase C (PKCe), which prolongs the phosphorylation-dependent open state of mito[K.sub.ATP] by forming a positive feedback loop [37].
Studies using the conventional knockout strategy found that global knockout of the gene encoding a brain enzyme called protein kinase C epsilon (PKCe) reduced alcohol self-administration as well as signs of alcohol withdrawal (Hodge et al.
