Example sentences for: diacylglycerol

How can you use “diacylglycerol” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • In certain types of tissues, ethanol has been shown to induce membrane translocation of PKC isoforms through activation of phospholipase A and release of diacylglycerol [ 40 ] . This mechanism, however, does not appear to be significant in our case as ethanol without PMA failed to potentiate IFNg-induced MHCII expression in LS1034 cells.
