Phosphoinositide lipid signaling

Phosphoinositides (PPIns) are lipid signaling molecules that coordinate membrane trafficking and cell signaling. They play an essential role in cell growth, metabolism, and cell death. The phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) signaling pathway is a critical signal transduction process that links the activation of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs), G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and oncogenes to multiple cellular functions.
