inositol

 [ĭ-no´sĭ-tol]
a cyclic sugar alcohol; usually referring to the most abundant isomer, myo-inositol, which is found in many plant and animal tissues and is often classified as part of the vitamin B complex.

in·o·si·tol

(in-ō'si-tōl, -tol),
A member of the vitamin B complex necessary for growth of yeast and of mice; absence from the diet causes alopecia and dermatitis in mice and "spectacle eyes" in rats. It occurs in a number of stereoisomeric forms: cis-, epi-, allo-, neo-, myo-, muco-, chiro-, and scyllo-inositols; the most abundant naturally occurring inositol is myo-inositol (usually meant when "inositol" occurs without a prefix).

inositol

/ino·si·tol/ (in-o´sĭ-tol) a cyclic sugar alcohol, the fully hydroxylated derivative of cyclohexane; usually referring to the most abundant isomer, myo -inositol, which occurs in many plant and animal tissues and microorganisms and is often classified as a member of the vitamin B complex.
inositol 1,4,5-triphosphate (InsP3, IP3)  a second messenger that causes the release of calcium from certain intracellular organelles.

inositol

(ĭ-nō′sĭ-tôl′, -tōl′, ī-nō′-)
n.
Any of nine isomeric alcohols, C6H12O6·2H2O, that are precursors to various signaling molecules.

inositol

[inō′sətōl, inos′-]
an isomer of glucose that occurs widely in plant and animal cells. Although inositol has no current therapeutic use, it is an essential cell constituent.

inositol

inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate
intracellular second messenger released from phosphatidyl 4,5-bisphosphate in response to agonist-dependent, GTP-G protein-activated phospholipase C. Called also IP3. Causes release of Ca2+ from intracellular stores, thereby activating calmodulin.
