Depositor Comments

This construct encodes a PI(4,5)P2 lipid selective PH domain that can be used as a fluorescent translocation biosensor to monitor changes or local differences in the concentration of plasma membrane PI(4,5)P2 lipids (Stauffer TP, Ahn S, Meyer T; Curr Biol. 1998 8:343-6). It is best used in combination with a second fluorescent protein that uniformly marks the plasma membrane (the last 20 amino acids "CAAX" region of KRas is often used as a PM marker). Relative changes in cell-wide or local plasma membrane PI(4,5)P2 can be determined by using a mask for the PM region and by dividing the two background subtracted PH domain and CAAX images. At high expression levels, this construct interferes with PI(4,5)P2 signaling and alters cortical actin (Raucher D et al Cell. 2000 100:221-8).
