Phosphatidylinositol (3,4)-bisphosphate

Phosphatidylinositol (3,4)-bisphosphate

Phosphatidylinositol (3,4)-bisphosphate (PtdIns(3,4)"P"2) is a minor phospholipid component of cell membranes, yet an important second messenger. The generation of PtdIns(3,4)"P"2 at the plasma membrane activates a number of important cell signaling pathways.

PtdIns(3,4)"P"2 is dephophosphorylated by the phosphatase PTEN on the 3 position of the inositol ring and by the TPTE (transmembrane phosphatases with tensin homology) family of phosphatases on the 4 position of the inositol ring.

The PH domain in a number of proteins binds to PtdIns(3,4)"P"2 including the PH domain in PKB. The generation of PtdIns(3,4)"P"2 at the plasma membrane upon the activation of class I PI 3-kinases and SHIP phosphatases causes these proteins to translocate to the plasma membrane, thereby effecting their activity.
