    A postsynaptic PI3K-cII dependent signaling controller for presynaptic homeostatic plasticity

    Anna G Hauswirth et al.
    A screen encompassing all kinases and phosphatases reveals that PI3K-cII, PI3K-cIII and Rab11-dependent recycling endosomes comprise a novel, postsynaptic 'signaling controller' that is part of an integrated, trans-synaptic signaling system necessary for presynaptic homeostatic plasticity.

    PI3K/Akt1 signalling specifies foregut precursors by generating regionalized extra-cellular matrix

    S Nahuel Villegas et al.
    A signalling cascade involving PI3K/Akt1 remodels the extra-cellular matrix to achieve atypical cellular responses and control cell fate specification within the embryonic endoderm.

    Rac1-mediated membrane raft localization of PI3K/p110β is required for its activation by GPCRs or PTEN loss

    Onur Cizmecioglu et al.
    A unique two-step mechanism of plasma membrane recruitment and activation governs G-protein-coupled receptor mediated PI3K signaling.

    Non-canonical antagonism of PI3K by the kinase Itpkb delays thymocyte β-selection and renders it Notch-dependent

    Luise Westernberg et al.
    Antagonistic signaling by the kinases PI3K and Itpkb limits the kinetics and enforces the Notch-dependence of beta-selection – the most important cell-fate determining process in alpha beta T cell development.

    Intracellular sphingosine releases calcium from lysosomes

    Doris Höglinger et al.
    Sphingosine acts as a lipid messenger molecule in intracellular signaling networks that are relevant to lysosomal function and Niemann-Pick disease.

    Akt regulation of glycolysis mediates bioenergetic stability in epithelial cells

    Yin P Hung et al.
    Individual cells display heterogeneous fluctuations in metabolic activity, with amplitude and kinetics controlled by interlocking feedbacks between glycolysis and the Insulin/PI3K/Akt signaling pathway.
