Long, Saturated Chains: Tasty Domains for Kinases of Insulin Resistance

Vladimir Lizunov, Petr Chlanda, Mary Kraft, Joshua Zimmerberg

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


The mechanistic basis of how cells respond to increased fatty acids (FAs) is murky but potentially involves receptor-mediated activation or inhibition by different FA classes. Holzer et al. (2011) recently propose in Cell that expansion of intracellular membrane microdomains induced by saturated FA recruit and activate c-Src for JNK activation.
