Functional role for protein kinase Cbeta as a regulator of stress-activated protein kinase activation and monocytic differentiation of myeloid leukemia cells.


Human myeloid leukemia cells respond to 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) and other activators of protein kinase C (PKC) with induction of monocytic differentiation. The present studies demonstrated that treatment of U-937 and HL-60 myeloid leukemia cells with TPA, phorbol-12,13-dibutyrate, or bryostatin 1 was associated with the induction of… (More)
