Metabolite Identification
Common Name1D-Myo-inositol 1,4,5,6-tetrakisphosphate
Description1D-Myo-inositol 1,4,5,6-tetrakisphosphate has been shown to regulate Cl- transport, to be a phosphoinositide 3-kinase antagonist, and to bind tightly to some pleckstrin homology domains, and finally, it may contribute to transcriptional regulation. Inositol phosphates comprise a large family of intracellular signals which play many important roles in cell biology. These biological actions can be quite specific to one particular inositol phosphate. 1D-myo-Inositol 1,4,5,6-tetrakisphosphate (Ins(1,4,5,6)P4) is phosphorylated by inositolphosphate-multikinase (IPMK; this enzyme has the capacity to regulate the cellular levels of Ins(1,4,5,6)P4 in mammalian cells.
