Phosphoinositides in insulin action and diabetes.

and Alan Saltiel

Current topics in microbiology and immunology 2012. 362: 61-85.


Phosphoinositides play an essential role in insulin signaling, serving as a localization signal for a variety of proteins that participate in the regulation of cellular growth and metabolism. This chapter will examine the regulation and localization of phosphoinositide species, and will explore the roles of these lipids in insulin action. We will also discuss the changes in phosphoinositide metabolism that occur in various pathophysiological states such as insulin resistance and diabetes.
