From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Inositol phosphates are a group of mono- to polyphosphorylated inositols. They play crucial roles in diverse cellular functions, such as cell growth, apoptosis, cell migration, endocytosis, and cell differentiation. The group comprises:
- inositol monophosphate (IP)
- inositol bisphosphate (IP2)
- inositol trisphosphate (IP3)
- inositol pentakisphosphate (IP5)
- inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) also known as phytic acid, or phytate (as a salt).
