Abstract

Natural solar radiation (5 min of midday exposure in mid July, latitude 42°N) induces protein kinase C mRNA almost two‐fold in human epithelioid P3 cells in culture. This response is the same as that following tumor promotion by chemicals. The result indicates a possible role of promotion by solar UV radiation.
