PIKfyve is a phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns) three-phosphate (P)-metabolizing enzyme, which, in addition to a C-terminally positioned catalytic area, harbors numerous evolutionarily conserved domains, which include a FYVE finger. PIKfyve exercise is dependable for the output of both PtdIns(three,five)P2 and phosphatidylinositol 5-phosphate (PtdIns5P). The dual specificity mammalian enzyme PIKfyve phosphorylates in vitro situation d-5 in phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns) and PtdIns 3-P, alone or exogenous protein substrates.PIKfyve’s function in acute insulin motion has been advised on the basis of its affiliation with the insulin stimulatable phosphatidylinositol-three-kinase and the potential of acute insulin to recruit and phosphorylate PIKfyve on intracellular membranes of 3T3-L1 adipocytes.
