Context is everything

Context is everything I have been reading a ton of articles lately, in order to get a better grip on phosphoinositide-binding proteins. Slowly, this made me realise that how we present our findings is important. Of course a well written article is easier to read than one that is not. But the order we presentContinue reading “Context is everything”

How phosphoinositol lipids can have an effect

How phosphoinosotol lipids can have an effect So in the last post I talked about that I am busy with trying to identify phosphoinositol lipids. But did not really say why I would like to know which proteins bind to my phosphoinositol lipid of interest. Phosphoinositol lipids can been seen as markers of the membranes.Continue reading “How phosphoinositol lipids can have an effect”

New lipid biosensor shines some light on stress response

New lipid biosensor shines some light on stress response PA (phosphatidic acid) is a membrane lipid, however it is also an important signalling lipid involved in the regulation of important cellular processes. In plants PA has been shown to be involved in the regulation of stomata opening as well as in drought and salt stress.Continue reading “New lipid biosensor shines some light on stress response”
