PtdIns(3,5)P2 is identified as the product of an agonist-independent, wortmannin-sensitive pathway in resting mouse cells. Results are presented here to indicate that PtdIns(3,5)P2 is formed by phosphorylation of PtdIns3P at the D-5 position, and they suggest that relatively constant cellular levels of PtdIns3P and PtdIns(3, 5)P2 are maintained by the(More)
Despite extensive analysis of phosphoinositide 3-hydroxykinases (PI 3-kinases) at the molecular level, comparatively little is known about the mechanisms by which products of these enzymes exert their expected second-messenger functions. This study examines the metabolism of D-3 phosphoinositides in mouse Ph-N2 fibroblasts lacking the platelet-derived(More)
Although it has been well established that constitutive activation of receptor tyrosine kinases leads to cellular transformation, the signal relay pathways involved have not been systematically investigated. In this study we used a panel of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) beta receptor mutants (beta-PDGFR), which selectively activate various signal(More)
Peptide-class II complexes are assembled in endocytic, lysosome-like compartments where newly synthesized class II molecules are targeted from the trans-Golgi network (TGN). Recent studies have implicated phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-kinase) as an essential component in membrane trafficking from the TGN to lysosomes. Here, using subcellular(More)
