Summation

On recruitment to plasma membrane PLC-gamma1 then hydrolyses PIP2 producing two second messengers, diacylglycerol (DAG) and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3). IP3 induces a transient increase in intracellular free Ca++, while DAG is a direct activator of protein kinase C (PKC theta). These process have been implicated in many cellular physiological functions like cell proliferation, cell growth and differentiation.
