Effects of phorbol ester on translocation and down-regulation of protein kinase C and phosphorylation of endogenous proteins in human acute myeloid leukemia cell line KG-1 and its phorbol ester-resistant subline KG-1a.


12-O-Tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) induced decreases in the catalytic activity and immunoreactivity of protein kinase C (PK-C) in the soluble fraction, accompanied by increases in their activities in the particulate fraction, of a human myeloid leukemia cell line KG-1. TPA also caused a similar down-regulation and translocation of PK-C in KG-1a, a… (More)
