Abstract

The C4-photocycloadduct psoralent-linolenic acid activates protein kinase C (PKC), in human platelets, which in turn phosphorylates 47 kDa protein, representing its major substrate in these cells. This behaviour is similar to that shown by diacylglycerol, a main second messenger responsible of various biological effects, e.g. of melanogenesis.
