Abstract Ganglioside GM3 and 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate activated protein kinase C as substitutes for phosphatidylserine and diacylglycerol. Hydrophobic gangliosides such as GM4 and GM3 were rather more potent activators of protein kinase C than hydrophilic ones such as GD1a and GT1b. Active tumor promoters such as teleocidin, mezerein, phorbol 12,13-acetate and phorbol 12,13-dibenzoate also activated protein kinase C, but not inactive tumor promoters such as phorbol and 4-alpha-phorbol 12,13-didecanoate.
