Abstract: Diacylglycerols are second messengers confined to biomembranes and, although relatively simple molecules from the structural point of view, they are able of triggering a surprisingly wide range of biological responses. Diacylglycerols are recognized by a well conserved protein motif, such as the C1 domain. This domain was observed for the first time in protein kinases C but is now known to be present in many other proteins. The effect of diacylglycerols is not limited to binding to C1 domains and they are able…
