Inositol pyrophosphates: metabolism and signaling

  title={Inositol pyrophosphates: metabolism and signaling},
  author={Matthew R. Bennett and Sara Maria Nancy Onnebo and Cristina Azevedo and Adolfo Saiardi},
  journal={Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences},
Inositol pyrophosphates belong to the diverse family of inositol polyphosphate species that have a range of signaling functions. Since the discovery of inositol pyrophosphates in the early 1990s, enormous progress has been achieved in characterising this class of molecules, linking their biological presence to a wide range of cellular functions, including vesicular trafficking, apoptosis, telomere maintenance and protein phosphorylation. The activity of inositol pyrophosphates appears to be… CONTINUE READING
