Analogously to the signature of pyrolysis in the C1s, the peak area of the imidic component in the N1s line decreased from 97% of the total N1s intensity of the pristine PI film to 48% for PI500.
PPIases catalyze the cis -trans isomerization of proline imidic peptide bonds in oligopeptides and accelerate the folding of proteins.[sup][26] Along with PPIB, PPIC localizes to the ER, where it maintains redox homeostasis.[sup][27] Increasing evidence from studies using in vitro and in vivo systems points to PKC zeta (PRKCZ) as a key regulator of critical intracellular signaling pathways such as mitogen-activated protein kinase cascade, transcriptional factor nuclear factor-kappa B activation, ribosomal S6-protein kinase signaling, and cell polarity.[sup][28] VIPR is a receptor for vasoactive intestinal peptide.
