Brief description :
  • Signals based on phosphatidylinositol and its metabolites are central to cellular communication in eukaryotic cells.
  • They provide molecular control of of key sub-cellular processes and orchestrate fundamental cellular behaviours such as cell division, shape change, polarized movement and cell death.
  • This meeting will discuss recent discoveries in inositide signalling.
