The cellular language of myo-inositol signaling.


The simple polyol, myo-inositol, is used as a building block of a cellular language that plays various roles in signal transduction. This review describes the terminology used to denote myo-inositol-containing molecules, with an emphasis on how phosphate and fatty acids are added to create second messengers used in signaling. Work in model systems has… (More)
