Phospholipid metabolism and membrane dynamics. Academic Article uri icon


  • Genetic and biochemical approaches are shedding new light on the distinct physiological functions of specific phospholipid metabolic pathways and the mechanisms by which phospholipids are mobilized between intracellular compartments. In particular, phosphatidylinositol-transfer proteins have recently been revealed to play fascinating and unanticipated roles in the coordination of phospholipid metabolism with vesicle-trafficking and signal-transducing reactions.
