Abstract

Phosphoinositides function as signaling precursors as well as regulators and scaffolds of signaling molecules required for important cellular processes such as membrane trafficking. Although a picture of the biochemical and cell biological functions of phosphoinositides is emerging, less is known about how these functions impact signaling on a broader scale during development. This review summarizes recent work on the role of phosphoinositides in developmental signaling and in a number of diseases and developmental disorders.
