Abstract

  • Inositol 1,3,4,5-tetrakisphosphates (Ins(1,3,4,5)P4), 32P-labelled in positions 4 and 5 were prepared enzymatically, using [4-32P]-phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PtdInsP) and [5-32P]phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PtdInsP2) as substrates, respectively. Degradation studies of Ins(1,3,4,5)P4, using an enriched phosphatase preparation from porcine brain cytosol, led to the formation of two inositol trisphosphate isomers which were identified as inositol 1,3,4-trisphosphate (Ins(1,3,4)P3) and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (Ins(1,4,5)P3). This novel degradation pathway of Ins(1,3,4,5)P4 to Ins(1,4,5)P3 provides an additional source for the generation of Ins(1,4,5)P3, involving a 3-phosphatase.
