Phosphatidylinositol 4-kinases (PI4Ks) phosphorylate phosphatidylinositol to generate phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PIP), an immediate precursor of several important signaling and scaffolding molecules. PIP itself may also have direct functional and structural roles. PI4K2B is a primarily cytosolic PI4K that is recruited to membranes, where it stimulates phosphatidylinositol 4, 5-bisphosphate synthesis (Wei et al., 2002 ).
