Ins (1,4,5)P3 derivative with a cage on position 4, which does not show biological activity until photochemical destruction of the cage. A short light pulse (254 or 360nm) releases active Ins(1,4,5)P3 within a second, thus mimicking the rapid responses of the receptor/phospholipase C signalling system in the cell. Since this approach does not (directly) trigger other signalling events, for instance protein kinase C (PKC) activation after receptor-mediated diacylglycerol (DAG) formation, these molecules are exciting tools to help dissect signalling pathways. This photolabile derivative of Ins(1,4,5)P3 is not metabolized by endogenous phosphatase (extinction coefficient: 4240M-1cm-1; 265nm, water).
