Inositol

inositol monophosphatase, IMPase, ImpA, IMPA2
This gene encodes an enyzme that dephosphorylates myo-inositol monophosphate to generate free myo-inositol, a precursor of phosphatidylinositol, and is therefore an important modulator of intracellular signal transduction via the production of the second messengers myoinositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate and diacylglycerol. This enzyme can also use myo-inositol-1,3-diphosphate, myo-inositol-1,4-diphosphate, scyllo-inositol-phosphate, glucose-1-phosphate, glucose-6-phosphate, fructose-1-phosphate, beta-glycerophosphate, and 2'-AMP as substrates. This enzyme shows magnesium-dependent phosphatase activity and is inhibited by therapeutic concentrations of lithium. Inhibition of inositol monophosphate hydroylosis and subsequent depletion of inositol for phosphatidylinositol synthesis may explain the anti-manic and anti-depressive effects of lithium administered to treat bipolar disorder. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. A pseudogene of this gene is also present on chromosome 8q21.13. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009] (from NCBI)

Evaluation of a DLA-79 allele associated with multiple immune-mediated diseases in dogs.
New
Meurs et al., Raleigh, United States. In Immunogenetics, Jan 2016
As many immune-mediated diseases in humans share polymorphisms among a common set of genes, we conducted a candidate gene study of 15 of these genes across four immune-mediated diseases (immune-mediated hemolytic anemia, immune-mediated thrombocytopenia, immune-mediated polyarthritis (IMPA), and atopic dermatitis) in 195 affected and 206 unaffected dogs to assess whether causative or predictive polymorphisms might exist in similar genes in dogs.

New
Santos et al., João Pessoa, Brazil. In Mol Psychiatry, Oct 2015
WES identified a homozygous deleterious variant in inositol monophosphatase 1 (IMPA1) (NM_005536), consisting of a 5-bp duplication (c.489_493dupGGGCT; chr8: 82,583,247; GRCh37/hg19) leading to a frameshift and a premature stop codon (p.Ser165Trpfs*10) that cosegregated with the disease in 26 genotyped family members.

Gould et al., Baltimore, United States. In Pharmacol Biochem Behav, 2014
Here we discuss preclinical research suggesting mechanisms likely to underlie lithium's therapeutic actions including direct targets inositol monophosphatase and glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) among others, as well as indirect actions including modulation of neurotrophic and neurotransmitter systems and circadian function.

Review
Diniz et al., São Paulo, Brazil. In Acs Chem Neurosci, 2014
Such a wide range of intracellular responses may be secondary to two key effects, that is, the inhibition of glycogen synthase kinase-3 beta (GSK-3β) and inositol monophosphatase (IMP) by lithium.

GeneRIF
Jones et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Nature, 2012
IGF-II messenger RNA binding protein (Imp) counteracts endogenous small interfering RNAs to stabilize upd RNA; but similar to upd, Imp expression decreases in the hub cells of older males, which is due to the targeting of Imp by the heterochronic microRNA let-7; in the absence of Imp, upd mRNA therefore becomes unprotected and susceptible to degradation
