PI4KB is a member of the phosphatidylinositol 4-kinase family (PI4K) and is the first committed step in the production of the second messenger inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate (PIP3). PI4KB regulates the golgi disintegration/reorganization during mitosis possibly via the phosphorylation of phosphatidylinositol (1). PI4KB is a type III enzyme that is sensitive to wortmannin and is responsible for regulating the synthesis of agonist-sensitive pools of polyphosphoinositides. PI4KB is critical for glucose-induced insulin secretion due to its capacity to regulate the release of secretory granules (2). PI4KB inhibits the insulin-stimulated translocation of glucose transporter-4 in mouse adipocytes through its interaction with neuronal calcium sensor-1.
