Phosphoinositides (PIPns) are minor components of cellular membranes but are integral signaling molecules for cellular communication. Phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PI(4)P) is the biosynthetic precursor to PI(4,5)P2 and has an important roles in regulating sphingomyelin and glycosphingolipid metabolism and membrane trafficking at the exit of the Golgi complex.
GloPIPs are labeled at the sn-1 position with BODIPY®-FL (505/513), BODIPY®-TMR (544/574), or biotin. The sn-1 linkage in these labeled PIPs has been changed to a more stable amide from an ester. Results from experiments conducted at Echelon indicated that this minor chemical change did not have a significant effect in any of the applications tested.
