The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism by which short-term pretreatment with the phorbol ester 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA; 100 nM) enhances noradrenaline (NA) release from the human neuroblastoma cell line SH-SY5Y. Subcellular fractionation and immunocytochemical studies demonstrated that an 8-min TPA treatment caused translocation of the alpha-subtype of protein kinase C (PKC) from the cytosol to the plasma membrane. In contrast, TPA altered the distribution of… CONTINUE READING
