Stimulation of deacylation in Madin-Darby canine kidney cells. 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate stimulates rapid phospholipid deacylation.


The tumor-promoting phorbol diester, 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate (TPA), stimulates Madin-Darby canine (MDCK) cells to deacylate cellular phospholipid and to produce prostaglandins. We have used this system to characterize the kinetics of deacylation of [3H]arachidonate and the further metabolism of arachidonate by the cyclooxygenase system… (More)
