Dissociation of protein kinase C activation and sn-1,2-diacylglycerol formation. Comparison of phosphatidylinositol- and phosphatidylcholine-derived diglycerides in alpha-thrombin-stimulated fibroblasts.

Diacylglycerols (DAGs) derived from phosphatidylcholine (PC) hydrolysis have been shown to activate protein kinase C (PKC) in vitro, but it is not known whether this event occurs in response to DAGs generated via agonist-induced PC hydrolysis in intact cells. In this report we have addressed this question directly, using alpha-thrombin stimulation of IIC9… CONTINUE READING
