Medical Sciences Special Seminar. Raymond Blind, UCSF. "Nuclear Lipid Signaling: How Non-Membrane Phosphoinositides Regulate Transcription"

The nucleus of every eukaryotic cell contains a pool of phosphoinositide (PIP) lipids that do not exist in a bilayer structure. Over 40% of nuclear PI(4,5)P (PIP2) exists in this non-membrane state, complexed to nuclear proteins—yet almost nothing is known about these lipid/protein complexes. My research interests lie in determining what biological processes are regulated by non-membrane phospholipids, how that regulation is executed, what biological information can be stored by these lipids, and why nature selected nuclear lipids to store that information
