BACKGROUND The control of apical-basal polarity in epithelial layers is a fundamental event in many processes, ranging from embryonic development to tumor formation. A key feature of polarized epithelial cells is their ability to maintain an asymmetric distribution of specific molecular complexes, including the phosphoinositides PI(4,5)P2 and PI(3,4,5)P3.(More)
Phosphatidylinositol phosphates (PIPs) are essential membrane components. They are localized at distinct membrane domains and recruit distinct effectors; they play an important role in the maintenance of membrane identity. They are essential for many cellular functions that include membrane trafficking, cytoskeletal organization, cell polarity and tissue(More)
