New synthetic diacylglycerols (DAGs) with equivalent branched acyl chains were compared with commercially available DAGs as PK-C ligands. The results support the view that there is a minimal lipophilic requirement provided by the equivalent acyl groups that results in high binding affinity. Locking the glycerol backbone of the most potent DAG into a five-member lactone resulted in a 10-fold increase in potency.
