sn-1,2-Diacylglycerol (DAG) mass and translocation of protein kinase C alpha and beta to a membrane fraction increased approximately 7 min after insemination of Xenopus laevis eggs. The DAG mass increase of 48 pmol (from 62 to 110 pmol/cell) was greater than that for inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3; an increase of approximately 170 fmol or approximately 280-fold smaller than the DAG increase), and DAG peaks approximately 5 min after IP3. Choline mass (a measure of phosphatidyl choline… CONTINUE READING
