Abstract: Phosphoinositides regulate numerous cellular processes required for growth, proliferation, and motility. Whereas phosphoinositide signal transduction pathways within the cytosol have been well characterized, nuclear signaling pathways remain poorly understood. Accumulating experimental data have now started to uncover critical functions for nuclear phosphoinositides. In particular, phosphoinositides modulate the activity of the tumor suppressor protein ING2 in response to extracellular stress. These findings highlight a previously uncharacterized function for phosphoinositides and implicate their metabolism in signaling pathways critical for cell survival.
