The tear film is a complex fluid that is secreted by several different glands surrounding the eye. The epithelial cells of the ocular surface itself also secrete components of the tear film. The action of blinking spreads the film of tears over the whole surface of the eye and mixes the tears underneath the lids.

A third group termed atypical PKCs (aPKC), including PKCz, and ‐i/l isoforms, are Ca2þ and DAG‐independent kinases. Protein kinase C isoforms have a molecular weight ranging from 74 to 115 kDa.
