Prostaglandin D2 mediates the stimulation of glycogenolysis in the liver by phorbol ester.

The tumour-promoting phorbol ester, phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA), when added to the perfused liver, stimulates glycogenolysis 2-fold. This stimulation is not seen when aspirin is present in the perfusion medium. In isolated parenchymal liver cells. PMA is not able to stimulate glycogenolysis, suggesting that its effect on glycogenolysis might be… CONTINUE READING
