Article title

Isozymes delta of phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C and their role in signal transduction in the cell.

Title variants
Languages of publication
Phospholipase C (PLC, EC is an enzyme crucial for the phosphoinositol pathway and whose activity is involved in eukaryotic signal transduction as it generates two second messengers: diacylglycerol (DAG) and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3). There are four major types of phospholipase C named: β, γ, δ and the recently discovered ε, but this review will focus only on the recent advances for the γ isozymes of PLC. So far, four d isozymes (named γ1-4) have been discovered and examined. They differ with regard to cellular distribution, activities, biochemical features and involvement in human ailments.
