Caveolins are integral membrane proteins which are a major component of caveolae. In addition, caveolins have been proposed to cycle between intracellular compartments and the cell surface but the exact trafficking route and targeting information in the caveolin molecule have not been defined. We show that antibodies against the caveolin scaffolding domain(More)
Hydrolysis by phospholipase C (PLC) of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate is a key mechanism by which many extracellular signalling molecules regulate functions of their target cells. At least eight distinct isozymes of PLC are recognized in mammalian cells. Receptor-controlled PLC is often regulated by G proteins, which can be modified by pertussis(More)
Caveolins are a crucial component of caveolae but have also been localized to the Golgi complex, and, under some experimental conditions, to lipid bodies (LBs). The physiological relevance and dynamics of LB association remain unclear. We now show that endogenous caveolin-1 and caveolin-2 redistribute to LBs in lipid loaded A431 and FRT cells.

Phosphatidylinositide (PI) 3-kinase binds to tyrosyl-phosphorylated insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1) in insulin-treated adipocytes, and this step plays a central role in the regulated movement of the glucose transporter, GLUT4, from intracellular vesicles to the cell surface. PDGF, which also activates PI 3-kinase in adipocytes, has no significant(More)
Members of the beta isozyme subfamily of the phosphoinositide-specific phospholipases C (PLC beta) have recently been shown to be stimulated by both guanine-nucleotide-binding protein alpha and beta gamma subunits. The alpha subunits of the Gq class activate PLC beta isozymes in the order of PLC beta 1 > or = PLC beta 3 >> PLC beta 2, which is different(More)
