Eukaryotic cells produce a family of diverse inositol polyphosphates (IPs) containing pyrophosphate bonds. Inositol pyrophosphates have been linked to a wide range of cellular functions, and there is growing evidence that they act as second messengers. Inositol hexakisphosphate kinase (IP6K) is able to convert the natural substrates inositol pentakisphosphate (IP 5) and inositol hexakisphosphate (IP 6) to several products with an increasing number of phospho-anhydride bonds. In this study, we… CONTINUE READING
