We found that phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PI4P) and phosphatidylinositol 4,5biphosphate [PI(4,5)P-2] increase the secretory response triggered by 10 mcM Ca2+ in streptolysin-O-permeabilized insulin-secreting INS-1E cells."
"In addition," wrote L. Waselle and colleagues, University of Lausanne, "nutrient-induced exocytosis was diminished in intact cells expressing constructs that sequester PI(4,5)P-2 and in cells...
