Defining the human targets of phorbol ester and diacylglycerol.

Abstract

Phorbol esters (PEs) and their derivatives are potent tumor-promoting agents. The best known receptors for these substances are the novel and classical isotypes of protein kinase C (PKC), which bind PE and the physiological second messenger diacylglycerol (DAG) by cysteine-rich domains, the C1 domains. However, PKC is not the sole receptor of PE, a concept… (More)
