Alterations in the level of dietary inositol can significantly influence the concentration of free inositol and inositol-containing phospholipid in the circulation and in selected mammalian tissues and cells. The 1-stearoyl 2-arachidonyl molecular species that commonly predominates in cellular phosphoinositides may be of considerable importance for the functioning of these phospholipids in biological membranes. Retailoring reactions subsequent to the de novo biosynthesis of PI involving the… CONTINUE READING
