High impact information on PLEKHA8

  • We have identified two effectors of PtdIns(4)P, the four-phosphate-adaptor protein 1 and 2 (FAPP1 and FAPP2) [1].
  • We have analyzed the role of the phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate adaptor protein-2 (FAPP2), a component of the apical transport machinery, in cilium formation in polarized Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells [2].
  • Furthermore, by using fluorescence recovery after photobleaching studies of domain connectivity and the generalized polarization spectra of Laurdan, we demonstrate that FAPP2 depletion impairs the formation of condensed apical membrane domains [2].
