Reviews of signal transduction have often focused on the cascades of protein kinases and protein phosphatases and their cytoplasmic substrates that become activated in response to extracellular signals. Lipids, lipid kinases, and lipid phosphatases have not received the same amount of attention as proteins in studies of signal transduction. However, lipids serve a variety of roles in signal transduction. They act as ligands that activate signal transduction pathways as well as mediators of… Expand
Effect of Intrinsic and Extrinsic Lipids on T-cell Signalling
TLDR
The modulation of TcR-dependent signalling events by lipids in in vitro and in vivo models focusing on the involvement of membrane rafts is reviewed, using clinical cases such as autoimmune diseases, aging and Alzheimer’s disease to illustrate recent findings. Expand
Regulation of Lipid Signaling by Diacylglycerol Kinases during T Cell Development and Function
TLDR
The roles of DAG-mediated pathways, PA-effectors, and DGKs in T cell development and function are discussed and recent work that has uncovered previously unappreciated roles for DGK activity is highlighted, for instance in invariant NKT cell development, anti-tumor and anti-viral CD8 responses, and the directional secretion of soluble effectors.

Lipid Transporters Beam Signals from Cell Membranes
TLDR
Current knowledge about the role of cholesterol and phospholipids of cellular membranes in regulating cell signaling and how lipid transporters participate this process are highlighted. Expand
Understanding of the roles of phospholipase D and phosphatidic acid through their binding partners.
TLDR
The PLD network suggests that PLD and PA could act as a decision maker and/or as a coordinator of signal dynamics, and provides a turning point for understanding the roles of PLD-PA as a dynamic signaling hub. Expand
Phospholipase Signaling in Breast Cancer.
TLDR
A thorough understanding of the breast cancer-associated signaling networks of phospholipases is necessary to determine whether these enzymes are potential targets for innovative therapeutic strategies. Expand

Structural and signaling role of lipids in plasma membrane repair.
TLDR
The current knowledge of how lipids facilitate plasma membrane repair by regulating membrane structure and signaling to coordinate the repair response is discussed, and it is briefly note how lipid involvement extends beyond plasma membrane Repair to the tissue repair response. Expand
