Phosphatidylinositol diC8 (ammonium salt) (PI diC8) is a synthetic, purified dioctanoyl PI.
Phosphoinositides (PIPns) are minor components of cellular membranes but are integral signaling molecules for cellular communication. Phosphatidylinositol (PI or PtdIns) is biosynthesized from CDP-diacylglycerol and inositol by phosphatidylinositol synthase. PI is the building block for phosphoinositide polyphosphates through phosphorylation by PI-kinases and is a substrate for PI-PLC yielding diacylgelycerol.
