PIK3C3 or phosphoinositide-3-kinase is a member of the PI 3-kinase family that mediates the active diversion of proteins from the secretory pathway to vacuoles. PIK3C3 are involved in both receptor-mediated signal transduction and intracellular trafficking. In yeast, the vps34 gene product is a PI 3-kinase. PIK3C3 has a substrate specificity and ion requirements that are distinct from the other known mammalian PI 3-kinases (1). PIK3C3 mediate catalysis on membranes and suppress futile adenosine triphosphatase cycles. PIK3C3 appears to alternate between a closed cytosolic form and an open form on the membrane (2).
