Information @ a Glance

  • Inositol, (of which the most prominent naturally occurring form is myo-inositol, cis-1,2,3,5-trans-4,6-cyclohexanehexol), is a carbocyclic polyol that plays an important role as the structural basis for a number of secondary messengers in eukaryotic cells, including inositol phosphates, phosphatidylinositol (PI) and phosphatidylinositol phosphate (PIP) lipids.
  • It is found in many foods, in particular, in cereals with high bran content, nuts, beans, and fruit, especially cantaloupe melons and oranges. Inositol is not considered a vitamin itself because it can be synthesised by the body.
    Inositol is needed for health at cellular level and a fair concentration is found in the lens of the human eye as well as the heart.
  • Men taking extra inositol reported that their hair loss had improved, with less hair falling out - although this has not been tested under clinical situations
  • Extracts of immature kernels of Zea mays catalysed the synthesis of indol-3- ylacetyl-myo-inositol galactoside from indol-3-ylacetyl-myo-inositol and UDP-galactose.
    The product of the reaction contained radioactivity from UDP-[U-'4C]galactose and was identified as indol-3-ylacetylmyo-inositol galactoside by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
  • Indol-3-ylacetyl-myo-inositol galactosyltransferase (indol-3-ylacetylmyo-inositol galactoside synthase) is present in developing kernels of Zea mays.
  • The solution containing IAA-myo-inositol glycosides,used as a standard, was prepared from an acetone/water (7:3, v/v) extract from 300 g of dry kernels. The acetone extract (2600 ml) was evaporated to 20% of its volume and left overnight in a cold-room. After filtration, the filtrate was evaporated to dryness, dissolved in propan-2-ol/water.
  • Myo-inositol (MI), a molecule that is located within astrocytes, is presumed to act as an osmolyte, and its concentration is altered in many brain disorders (1). MI is also involved in the activation of protein C kinase.
  • The enzyme inositol oxygenase (myo-inositol : oxygen oxidoreductase; is a monooxygenase that converts inositol into glucuronic acid in the presence of molecular oxygen.
  • Myo-inositol and several other polyols in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and plasma from 10 AD subjects and 10 healthy age-matched controls by using
    a gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric technique.
  • A myo-inositol transport mutant was isolated from UV-mutagenized S. cerevisiae cells using the replica-printing technique.
  • There is a paucity of data on the way (cAMP, inositol), qualitatively or quantitatively, altered in heart failure (HF). These studies were performed separately on animal models, but no study checked cAMP and inositol changes in the same animal model simultaneously.
  • Pig feed is mainly based on cereals where phosphorus (P) is mostly present in inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), which is not readily available to monogastric animals. More available P sources are often added to ensure that pigs’ requirements are fulfilled; this results in high excretion levels of P. The digestibility of P depends on phytase activity and amount of IP6 in feedstuffs.
  • The formation of inositol within the animal body was used for the normal concentration of body inositol and the continued urinary excretion of inositol by rats fed a low inositol diet for prolonged periods.
  • Inositol phosphate-containing molecules play an important role in a broad range of cellular processes. Inositol 5-phosphatases participate in the regulation of these signaling molecules.
  • Inositol is a simple isomer of glucose that is a key metabolic precursor in the phosphatidylinositol cycle.
  • Currently there are 11 active producers of inositol in China, and most of them are distributed in North China.
  • China is a large producing country of inositol in the world, about 80% of whose output was exported to overseas market. Thus overseas demand of inositol has an important impact on Chinese inositol industry.
