Treatment of rats in vivo with ACTH provoked increases in whole adrenal contents of phosphatidylinositol and diacylglycerol. Concomitantly, C-kinase activity decreased in cytosol and increased stoichiometrically in the membrane fraction. It appears that the de novo phospholipid synthesis effect of ACTH is accompanied by increases in diacylglycerol and translocative activation of the C-kinase system.
