Interaction Information:

Comment IMPase and IPPase are enzymes involved in recycling and de novo synthesis of inositol, which is a necessary component of the phosphoinositol signaling pathway. Lithium inhibits both enzymes which results in a decrease of myo-inositol and an accumulation of inositol-1-monophosphate.
