General description

Phosphatidylinositol (PI), a glycerophospholipid has a head group which carries a cyclohexanol moiety. 08:0 PI (1,2-dioctanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phospho-(1′-myo-inositol)) is a PI analog with a shorter acyl chain.


08:0 PI (1,2-dioctanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phospho-(1′-myo-inositol)) may be used:
• as a substrate for phosphatidyl-myo-inositol mannosyltransferase (PimA) to compare the effect of non-substrate phospholipids on the activity
• as a replacement for mycobacterial membranes in enzymatic assays to measure PimA activity
• as a phospholipid (PL) standard in the ion trap-time of flight (IT-TOF) system to study the fragmentation principles of unique PLs and also used as a nonendogenous PL standard for the quantitative analysis of PLs in nut samples

Biochem/physiol Actions

Inositol phospholipid species are membrane-bound signaling molecules that have been implicated in almost all aspects of cellular physiology, including cellular growth, metabolism, proliferation, and survival.

Phosphatidylinositol (PI) serves as a precursor of a phosphoinositides, a class of signaling lipids.
