Isopentenyl pyrophosphate is a lipid of Prenol Lipids (PR) class. Isopentenyl pyrophosphate is associated with abnormalities such as Tuberculosis, NAVAJO NEUROHEPATOPATHY and Cryptosporidiosis. The involved functions are known as Signal, Anabolism, T-Cell Activation, T-Cell Proliferation and isoprenoid biosynthetic process. Isopentenyl pyrophosphate often locates in Protoplasm, Host Cell, soluble, Plastids and Cell surface. The associated genes with Isopentenyl pyrophosphate are oxytocin, 1-desamino-(O-Et-Tyr)(2)-, HLA-E gene, RAP1A gene, Gene Family and Orthologous Gene. The related lipids are Steroids, Sterols and isopentenol.
