TPA (Phorbol-12-Myristate-13-Acetate)

TPA (12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate) / PMA (phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate) is the most commonly used phorbol ester. It binds and activates protein kinase C, causing a wide range of effects in cells and tissues (1,2). TPA has been demonstrated to be a potent tumor promoter in mouse skin (3). Conversely, it has been shown to be an effective cancer therapeutic agent in myelocytic leukemia patients, and has been indicated as a potential colorectal cancer therapeutic (4-5). TPA has also been shown to increase white blood cell and neutrophil counts in solid tumor cancer patients (6). 1.
