Synthesis of 2nd messengers from PI phosphatidylinositol (PI) membrane phospholipid, inositol always faces cytosol. Inositol can be reversibly phosphorylated at one or more positions. Inositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP 2 ) PIP2 can be cleaved by phospholipase C to yield two 2nd messengers, DAG and IP3.

IP3 - opens Ca ++ ion channel. Rapid rise in cytoplasmic Ca ++ concentrations. DAG - has 2 potential roles. 1. Can be cleaved to generate Arachidonic Acid (a signaling molecule and a precursor for Eicosanoids (small lipid signal molecules).

DAG - has 2 potential roles. Eicosanoids include the prostagladins. Pain and inflammatory responses. Aspirin, ibuprofen and cortisone all act by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis. 1)DAG activates: PROTEIN KINASE C (serine/threonine kinase)

Key Concept: Ca ++ is an ubiquitous, very important 2nd messenger. Acts as an Allosteric effector . It binds to specific proteins in the cell, altering their structure = activity.

1.cytosolic [Ca ++ ] is low (10 -7 ). Ca ++ ATP-driven pump in PM Ca/Na antiporter 1. Cells can sequester Ca inside of vesicles (ER and mitochondria). 1.Cells have Ca-binding molecules in the cytoplasm that bind Ca tightly Calsequestrin

Influx of Ca 2+ is monitored by specific Ca 2+ binding proteins. CALMODULIN Highly conserved protein. Binds Ca - undergoes a conformation change Once activated by Ca, can in turn activate other proteins. (TRANSDUCER Protein)
