In platelets, activation of protein kinase C and mobilization of Ca2+ were selectively induced by the addition of 1-oleoyl-2-acetyl-glycerol and a low concentration of A23187, respectively (Kaibuchi, K., Takai, Y., Sawamura, M., Hoshijima, M., Fujikura, T. and Nishizuka, Y. (1983) J. Biol. Chem. 258, 6701-6704). Using this procedure evidence was obtained suggesting that the protein phosphorylation and Ca2+ mobilization were both essential and synergistically effective to cause release of lysosomal acid hydrolases such as N-acetylglucosaminidase. A similar observation was made for the lysosomal enzyme release from rat neutrophils.
